I've been creating digitally for about 10 years: mainly drawing, and designing concert posters for independent bands.
I say that I "lead an (almost) entirely vintage-inspired life", because owning a mobile phone & computer are really the only exceptions I've made. I come from a family of collectors and antique dealers, and have been truly passionate about vintage & antique... well, everything, for as long as I can remember. This has had a tremendous influence on all aspects of my life, including what I wear, the way I decorate my home, and the work I've done, right down to determining my scrapbook layouts and designs.
I do still prefer to work with my hands, and love the feeling of paper, but am constantly amazed by how many options are available to us digitally, and love that there truly are endless possibilities... that's just so exciting!
I stumbled upon Pixel Scrapper almost by accident, but I'm thrilled to have found it. I already feel as though I really am part of a community, and one that does help to make the internet feel a bit less cold and anonymous. I'm completely on board with the manifesto, and the belief that "together, we can make a better internet."
There is such an abundance of creativity and generosity here, and I can't tell you how inspiring everyone and everything is!
