Alice Isaac likes to mix things up. Describing herself as an image-maker and animator, she creates delightful images which are a blend of collage work, illustration, and animation. Her messy creations rely heavily on her background within the worlds of fashion, editorial, illustration, and animation – which means the end result (albeit messy) is well-intended.
“I always say my style was kind of born out of necessity,” Isaac relayed in an interview with Inky Goodness. “When I first took the leap away from production I had minimal skills, I was ok at Photoshop, I could open After Effects. But technically I was a total beginner. My style is pretty low fi because my skills were pretty low fi, collage is also a great medium to work with if you can’t draw that well!”
It’s her unique approach to image-making which has caught the attention of top brands such as Reebok, Nike, Prada, and Adidas. Each job demands a different approach. Sometimes her work includes hand-making collages, while other times her work is completely digital. But more often than not – its a mash-up of the two approaches.
“I don’t feel like I really have a consistent process, everything I work on is so different,” she admitted. “The only thing that I really try to do for every job is research and mood boarding – although this is entirely dependant on how much time I have, the depth of that research can be a very quick hour to a week’s worth of prep.”
