Throwback Thursday?

So this has been an idea I’ve had for quite some time now…sharing all of my old projects, from ’05-’07, back when I was just discovering what “digital art” was. I started out back in about 2003 making cartoon dolls, or basically drawing pixel clothes on pixel bodies. At that point, we all either knew I’d be a fashion designer or some sort of digital artist, ha! Unfortunately, I don’t have any of my old dolls after a tragic computer crash in 2005. But I do have all of my old collages!

I had this livejournal account, and I loved making icons…that was my favorite. The livejournal is still up, but tragically, all my photobucket links are broken ;) How I wish I knew what an external hard drive was back then!

Side note…elmers glue?? Totally relevant to the ‘scene’…

The reason I was hesitant to post these is because I don’t have the credits to the original images, but I think it’s so fun to share how you got started and show that progression. If you’re interested in seeing more (believe me, I made plenty!!) let me know! I still can’t quite believe I made these…it’s so different than my aesthetic now!

LOVE IT. Still holds up :]

OMG I love this series, Kyla!!! I used to make these collages too. There was a name for them, I swear but I used people like the Backstreet Boys hahaha! I definitely wish I could see the stuff I used to make back then, but like you, no external hard drive and computer crashes :-/ keep doing throwback Thursdays! I’d love to see all your old stuff!!

This is really fun – I like seeing the progression and you can really see the evolution of your particular style, especially with Robot Friends
