Inspiration: Silja Goetz

After flicking through the latest issue of Computer Arts, I just had to find out more about illustrator Silja Goetz. Silja has written a great tutorial in the magazine on how to make illustrations using collage and found objects, combined with hand drawn sketches which are then digitally altered to create wonderful pieces of art work.

Silja was born in Regenburg, Germany in 1974 and after studying communication design in N├╝rnberg, worked for Allegra Magazine for 2 years. She has since moved to Spain and has had work published in, amongst others, the New Yorker, UK Vogue, Cosmopolitan and Marie Claire.

Her work has really inspired me to collect some bits and bobs such as string, feathers and patterned paper and get my scanner up and running again!
