Mood Board

There is one thing I think you should know about me...I love mood boards. Putting together a mood board helps me to set the tone for a project, consider colour and texture combinations and get inspired. The following board is for a character illustration I'm working on for a Skillshare class I'm taking. If you are interested in taking this class as well you can get 10 dollars off (that's 50%!) by clicking here. I'm currently enrolled for a few classes through Skillshare so you can expect more mood board and progress posts in the near future. 

I always start my moodboards by collecting and grouping images to my pinterest. You can see all of my pinterest boards here
Have a lovely day.

'Meeting of Minds and Scissors'

I'm so excited to have discovered this wonderful meet-up group in Toronto called collage collective. Every so often this group of lovely people get together to chat, eat, drink and of course collage. Stacks of magazines are supplied and everyone brings a snack to share. For me this is one of the most enjoyable ways to spend a weekday evening.

Two weeks ago I learned that the collage collective will be participating in an event called 'come up to my room' that's happening Jan. 23-26th at the Gladstone Hotel in Toronto. They needed to submit a promotional video for the event so I offered to help out. We put together the following stop motion clip.
