Says Australian designer Josh Brown on his beautiful collage work: ‘A lot of my inspiration comes from artists like Kill Pixie, Alex Trochet, Damn Sea Legs, and Jonathon Zawada. I have recently started creating a collection of portraits using pencil. I am intrigued to branch out and use a range of different media in the near future. But for now I am loving the pencil look!’ ‘In a lot of my earlier works and still now I have a love for illustration in really old childrens books. I use a lot of characters from books in my artwork and manipulate these through collage to create my own characters which tell a new story, creating an entirely new purpose for the character’.
