Growing Pains

Here's a little illustration based on growing pains. I wanted to get across the insecurities felt throughout those early teenage years concentrating particularly on body image. I also wanted to explore teenage perceptions of of the "perfect" body, which links directly to celebrity culture and the development of eating disorders and negative associations with food.

My photo
Inspired by Circuses, Victoriana, and Surrealism I create collage’s combining the past and present through a mixture of found imagery, illustration, photography and drawing. Working with collage and my trusted photocopier I create all of my work by hand, frequenting second hand shops, car boot sales and markets to build up my ever growing archive of second hand books, magazines, photographs and postcards. I always create my work by hand, only using a computer for layout at final stages. I like my illustration to have a certain tangibility, a quality that cannot be captured by digital means alone, even if that is as small as a blob of ink or a smudge on a photocopy.
