Flashers Artist Profile – Rebecca Sarjeant

What do you create when you’re not making mean art for Flashers? I study Visual Communication full-time at UTS as well as designing for several freelance projects and working part-time in retail.

What are your earliest memories of scribbling?

I have this one memory from when I was around ten years old and I was laying on the sofa, drawing, to get away from the house full of adults we had 'round that evening. I’d become so tired I could no longer support my head and my eyes were closing, but the pencil was still scribbling. It gave all the adults in the room a laugh anyway!

How do you draw inspiration for each Flasher image?

I start by reading through the Flasher story and brain storming, picking out key words, themes and ideas. I then draw a few different thumbnails and begin to work in my chosen medium.

Which artist or artistic movement should we be checking out right now?

Some of my all-time favourite works are by Si Scott Studios. They're producing insanely intricate prints, that I could only dream of creating.

Which Flasher+illustration combo was your favourite?

No doubt about it, the first Flasher story I illustrated: A Sailboat for Naima. The story was so warming and was set in this exciting city, so it was an enjoyable process.
