BARON FIG GREETING CARD ART

Here are a few variations on the 'puzzle head' concept - I started thinking about more about the idea of each piece being a different part of a puzzle, and had the thought to arrange more pieces around the head as though they were all laid out on a table randomly, and then a few were arranged into the head-shape.

Below we have 8 variations - the first two are a mixture of photographs & hand drawn elements - the next 4 are all hand drawn elements, and the last two are all photographs. All photos were sourced from flickr commons, which is a collection of non-copyrighted scans of old imagery uploaded by libraries and universities...

big ideas can come from combining a lot of smaller ideas and inspirations - sometimes working through a concept can feel like putting together a puzzle using pieces from a bunch of other puzzles.

creatives have to keep their eyes open and remain aware to stay inspired - everything you see could be that spark you need.

'catching lightning in a bottle' is an old expression that means to capture something fleeting or hard to reproduce.

For me, working through a complex and tangled concept feels like pulling on a thread, ya gotta keep pulling 'til you figure it out.
