    your illustrations are great – what medium do you use?

      Hey! Your reply never popped up. I just stumbled on it. Sorry! I wasn’t ignoring you. Thank you for the kind words. I do 90% of my sketches with pencil and paper and then trace them into Adobe Fireworks. I also work in Photoshop and draw on the ipad sometimes. Easier to fix mistakes in digital. I screw up a lot. lol

        hey, no worries, no worries x yea i love your blend of organic / 21st century, very nice 🙂

        i’d like to start doing more technology-influenced stuff.. my only ‘equipment’ atm is scissors, glue and a 60 quid scanner loool

    Very creative! Would like to know more about your process. And, how and why you came up with these thought provoking images.

    • Hello, Fig says:

      hey, thank you 🙂 there’s a bit about my ‘process’ re: earlier posts here

      about the macros, i try to only source images that are being used to sell products – mainly adverts in vintage / contemporary magazines. i guess this was inspired by andy warhol to an extent and also by dada readymades – a pre-existing object / image / text that is ‘remixed’ and made into something else, or at least given a different context

      i like the idea of filtering comments on ‘society’ through images that were designed to manipulate society, and trying to subvert or highlight the absurdity of that process

      but hmmmmmmmm wow i don’t know.. i also just want to be dumb and funny most of the time 😉 😉

        Thank you for your interesting reply. How interesting. Let’s keep up the conversation. I like talking about art.

        You are funny. I also am interesting in your following the footsteps of the dadaists and questioning the advertising industry. I look forward to more.
