New Exclusive Premium Tutorial on Creating a Retro Collage
Sometimes Photoshop illustrations can seem too sterile, slick and mechanical – so in this tutorial I’ve taken inspiration from the works of Eduardo Recife and Jorge Restrepo to show you how to assemble a collage that has a distinct retro, worn quality.
The key to this style of illustration is to start collecting your own source imagery. Vintage, copyright-free magazines can be picked up for next-to-nothing in second hand bookstores and junk shops. Most of the images for this tutorial are from my own collection and can be found in the "source" folder. This tutorial will hopefully make you think beyond your computer, whilst at the same time, re-discover some of Photoshop’s fundamental tools.
