Mums on mars – Illustration and collage by Lara Lee

Probably our favourite title for a picture collection, ever. Mums on Mars is the out of this world collage series by Lara Lee. Having recently graduated from Royal College of Art in Animation, Lara works in any number of mediums to try and document real life with a surreal twist.

Lara told us, “the Mums on Mars series came about when I realised, one day, that my mum's life seemed to be drifting somewhat after her kids left the nest. I decided to ask people to text their mums and find out what they were doing at that precise moment. I then depicted the mums accordingly in the series. I wanted to emphasise their invisible life as individuals and some mums who are wandering on the edge of a strange existence.”

You can keep up with Lara's work on her tumblr page or website.
