Creating a collection- An interview with Tasha(AKA Jubly-Umph)
- What inspired you to create this new collection?
I was inspired by my favourite evil ladies from books and films. I have always liked the evil characters the most. They seem to have more motivation, ambition, back story and depth than the heroes. And of course they all have killer style!
- The new works seem to be a mash of a few different styles?
Yes, I took the features of my favourite villains such as dark eyes and dress styles and combined them with elements of folk art such as Day Of The Dead style teeth, ornate flowers and tattoos. I took great delight in adding small details to each character such as the deadly nightshade plants on Wednesdays dress, the crow on the Sorceresses chest and the castle in the Evil Queens crown.
- There seems to be a colour theme. Was this intentional?
I didn’t set out to use set colours but as I worked on each of the pieces I found I was using the same emerald greens, deep purple and lilac and dark red and maroon.
- How was the artwork created? Can you explain the process
I created this entire collection digitally. I sketch out the initial design in pencil in my sketchbook and then scan the sketch into Manga Studio and start drawing using my Cintiq tablet.
- When will the new collection launch?
The new collection launches on 14th July at 8am and it includes 5 designs in brooches and pendants.
