Mountain Tigre Collage

This is a collage design I made one Sunday, to keep myself entertained. I’ve got a collection of books with fabulous images, I buy from second hand shops just to cut up for collages, for birthday cards for friends and designs like these.

My collage has a little image of Michael Palin coming out of a helicopter on the Himalaya, a tiger and a teen with a tape player just like the one my granny used to own. I did have other random elements but you can go too far on the weird scale.

I used some marbled paper I made from a few weeks ago and some ink splats done by hand as I like to make a mess where possible. Marbling is such fun. Here’s a great video of someone marbling.┬áIt’s an enjoyable watch. So the great thing about being a freelance graphic designer is you can stop work and make a collage whenever you want. Fact is, I don’t tend to do this sort of thing during the week as I find it helps to establish some sort of routine to my day.
