Welcome to a place of enchantment, magic and creative dreaming through Digital Collage.

What fun this was! I have to admit that my love of collage all began with the wonderful art books by Nick Bantock. I bought Griffin and Sabine and loved everything about it and all of the subsequent books that he has put out. His art is extraordinary and I had never seen anything like it before. Collage spoke to me- since I can't draw and I love how he uses old maps, stamps, vintage imagery and bascially created "mail art" as we call it now. I spent quite a few years creating altered books and journals (trying) to fashion my art in his style and it was difficult; then with teaching my self digital art though Photoshop I found it to be a lot more exciting and conducive to this style of collage art.
These are my entries for the Digital Mania challenge this week where the featured artist is of course Nick Bantock. Imagery from Jen Maddox, itKuPiLLi and finecrafted designs.
