I'm pretty obsessed with collecting images from the web, books, magazines etc. Since my scanner went kaput I've been unable to get a load of stuff on my computer and have a pile of books that need sorting through for the choice cuts. It's all for the good of my work though (or so I tell myself).

I'm bored and uploading images I like, so thought I'd put them here:

Funny how sometimes the subject you're working on makes you seek out particular styles, and you uncover a whole new lot of inspiration. I spent a few hours last night trawling through links of impossible images and op art. Here are some of my favourites:

I'm not sure if this will prove popular seeing as some of you probably already have Flickr accounts for stuff like this but it is worth a try. We've already had a [url=http://www.rllmukforum.com/index.php?showtopic=207745&view=findpost&p=6108900]designers/artists you like[/url] thread but this is more general as it is just individual images that might provide inspiration for those creative types on the forum. I realise there are plenty of image bookmarking sites out there but a rllmuk curated one may have some value.

Preamble over, here are some images from my hard drive:

I'll post some photos tomorrow but hopefully people will have added some images of their own by then too.
