He has become well known for his illustrations inspired by his personal collection of toys. He said in his personal statement at ‘robflowers.co.uk’- “I spend most of my time either illustrating stuff influenced by some of my favourite things or searching for junk to add to my growing collection of assorted miscellany.”
Work he has produced inspired by his taxonomy of toys…
This was for a project aimed at children for a group exhibition called ‘Pssst!’ Exhibition at MMK Frankfurt. The images are revealed when you look through the coloured lenses in the masks. I like how the illustrations have become interactive with his audience in this project.

Through his simple collection of toys, through illustration Rob flowers has had masses of inspiration for his professional practise. He has demonstrated to me the possible ways of how I could interpret my taxonomy of images into a visual graphic form.
