Did you ever see that copy of Die Zeit with the front cover illustrated by Adam Higton? A cheerful, smiley sunflower resting on a retina-searing yellow to declare to all the grumpy, cold commuters that SPRING was finally here! Adam doesn’t often do high profile mag covers like that, he tends to spend his time cutting out shapes, arranging them into creatures and characters, creating collages and photographing them in woodland environments.

Recently Adam’s been working on a new series of small square collages that fit together to form a large mega-collage of smiling little characters inspired by myths and folklore. To add an extra element to this already spectacular project, Adam has been making music to go with it. For every creature in the collage Adam has composed a different song, to promote his music and art as one, and to personify them through the medium of song. Please listen, everything Adam produces makes you feel squishier and happier than when you see two cats licking each other.
