Rediscovering Long-Lost Art Prints
12 years ago I created a series of photoshopped black and white photography art prints only to do nothing with them…
A late night search for a random computer file brought led me to rediscovering long-lost art prints. Amazingly I had forgotten just how much I love them. With recent news feeds showing animals and nature reclaiming almost abandoned cities and town centres, these images have never been more appropriate.
12 years ago…
In 2009, I was living in Spitalfields, East London and working as Lead Graphic Designer for the design team at Barclays Capital. Mentally, I was in a difficult place. The people I worked with in the design team were great, the working environment was not. The daily commute brought about mild panic attacks and it was clear this was not where I wanted to be.
I decided to take back control and inject more creativity into my life. I began spending my evenings and weekends working on freelance commissions and personal projects. One of these was a project I called Urban Jungle.
Urban Jungle was conceived around the idea of wild animals living our lives, undertaking the daily commute. Using Adobe Photoshop I blended photography to create a set of four black and white photography art prints. Despite adoring them, I ultimately did nothing with them. I had ambitions to sell the wall art prints but as often happens, life got in the way. Tigerlilly Designs took off, I moved home, changed computers (more than once), and had two children. Needless to say Urban Jungle got lost and buried in a mountain of digital files and wasn’t given another thought.
I won’t make the same mistake again. My Etsy store gains more visitors every day so I’ve put these images out into the world. I hope you enjoy them!
