The Colombian artist Elena Landínez creates collage illustrations by recycling pieces of stamps, maps, photos among others. She also adds drawings and typography to her artwork which gives them an interesting and unique style.
Elena was commissioned to do illustrations for publishing house Villegas Editores who used them in their range of children books.
These illustrations were taken from the book “Alicia en el país de las delicias” based on Alice in Wonderland.
Chris Arran says “Illustration never stands still and fashion changes as does technology. It’s easy to get into a formulaic way of working and all of a sudden you can find that you no longer love doing what you do best or perhaps what you do goes out of fashion never to return. Constant experimentation enables you to become more flexible with your skill base and ways of seeing and expressing yourself so that your work constantly develops and remains relevant.”
Artist Jose Romussi breathes new life into his artwork by recollecting images from different old fashion magazines and embroidering colorful thread onto collages. Get inspired here.
