polly becker is an illustrator who i have only recently discovered. i have never looked at her work before and i wish i had seen it sooner. i find her illustrations quite an eye opener and i hope to have a go at using my objects which i have collected, in a similar way. She uses both found objects and 2d drawn elements in her work. I like the way she uses the old photos of faces roughly cut out with suiting expressions on their faces, and the little dolls legs the way she arranges the images makes you stop and stare to try to solve or unlock the message she is trying to give. I think her work is great to look at and a good reason for this would be that she includes objects of familiarity and that have a human element. i want to try and find more illustrators that work with 3d objects.
