I was very kindly invited to be interviewed for a the 'Imagination Edition' of London's uber-cool creative publication, 'Fabric-a Magazine'. It ended up being a first-up, fourteen page feature exploring many aspects of me and my most recent work. I hope it gives some background as to who I am and what I'm all about. It was certainly a very humbling experience and I am am very grateful to Creative Director Andrea Horne, and Editor In Chief Edyta Michalska for the more than flattering opportunity to share my work and outlook.

Instagram’s ‘liking phenomena’ is an excellent barometer for this; I Without giving away all of your love to have such rapid feedback to secrets, how do you create these my creations. graphic images? Well I guess initially it’s like a painting, thoughts and ideas and imagery and the myriad of ways that I can manipulate those things are like my palette. Using that mind palace again, I take a base image (or a few) and outline the composition, draft it out, and then it’s a process of merging other images, as they are, or manipulated in there own way, or how might be advantageous to the underlying When I was at school, it troubled layers.

As with many things I’ve come up against in life, generally, when I can’t figure whether something I one thing or another, it is generally a combination of the things I’m trying to distinguish. Who’d have thought it, with Instagram, I’ve realised, my creativity is in a worldwide hole, everyone is invited, and there’s an amazing party going on! How do you want to be remembered?

What is the easiest way for readers to contact you? At email; michaelrobbie@me.com I love to hear from them and do my very best to steal a moment to reply, by hiding behind a sofa or otherwise, I am grateful that someone would read my ramblings, and in some way connect with me or my work in some way and care to join me on my journey, or invite me to join them on theirs! It’s been a daunting request for me to answer many of these questions. It has been terrifying, cathartic and intensely enjoyable to be graciously given the opportunity! I rarely afford myself the time to meditate on such matters. I really must work on this; and touch back with you in the future at some point. Thank you all at Fabric-A Magazine, a brilliant concept and fabulous outlet for creative souls in the challenging times we face! Michael I. Robbie michaelrobbie@me.com 19
