Madelaine Buttini







We are thrilled to feature Madelaine Buttini (aka Mad Butt) on the blog! Crafting colorful analog and digital collages, she explores themes of relationships and feminism, with a touch of wit and humor as well. Her passion and spirit are apparent in her work.

Madelaine Buttini is a visual artist from Brisbane, Australia. She is currently exploring hand cut and digital collage using vintage and modern materials. Madelaine aspires to bring a moment of happiness and hope from her artwork, especially for those who feel lost and alone within our busy and sometimes overwhelming society. Her work reflects upon the challenges she has faced as a friend, girlfriend and feminist.

Jo Illustrates!

Work featuring great color, architecture, an eye for design, and fun shops?! Yes please! If this intrigues you as much as us, check out Jo Illustrates! Jo Illustrates! is a project by a Sydney based artist who dabbles in illustration; she draws inspiration from a past life of studying graphic design and architecture, working in a graphic style that is detail orientated. Jo was kind enough to give us some insight into how she approaches her work: I use a combination of copic markers, paint pens and felt tip markers in my work and find the materials I use inform the type of art I create. Almost as if they are in charge and it's my job to figure out how to form an image from their application. I find approaching my art in this way is not only expressive, but methodical and puzzle like.  I am inspired by architecture, music, travel, design, pattern and colour. You can see more of her work on Instagram   @_jo_illustrates or on Etsy  http://w
