Which mediums do you use?

Generally I use acrylics on paper or wood which I then scan and adjust in Photoshop. When I first began I also incorporated a lot of collage – cut up magazines rubbed back to create a textured solid colour, photocopies, found objects etc. I still like to use unusual materials, objects and textures – digital photography and scanning has greatly expanded my ability to do this, and ensures the accurate reproduction of the work (objects no longer fall off the artwork on the way to the photographer!). Though I work in a stylised manner I’ve not been able to go down the slick vector path of digital imagery – I prefer to keep a warmth and "human touch" to my work, keeping textures, brush strokes, mistakes and scribbles.
