Because The Little Prince is a book for children, I decided to add some textures onto my work just like a children’s book. The mixture of creepiness (mental illnesses) and the sense of touch (children’s book) seems really interesting and exciting to me.
To get myself started, I did a research on textile children’s books.

From the previous collage trial, Prof re-introduced me to synecdoche and I did a few research before proceeding to the next phase of trying to incorporate synecdoche Read more →
So with all the little by little research, I tried to do my own collage using brochures. That was the initial idea so I randomly teared brochures and tried to put my idea from what i imagined to paper…. But it didn’t turn out the way I wanted to.Read more →
When the brief was given for this POV project, I decided to do collages, like cut and paste collages. So I head on to Pinterest to find inspiration on collages as well as finding out different artists all together.
Below are some of the inspiration tabs I screenshot while researching.

Here are some images of the WIP. And done some digital work with the images. I’m rather pleased with the colours and textures used (coffee stains on watercolour paper). However, the images are captured with a camera and not scanned hence its quite pixelated when zoomed in.
