Here at Time Out towers, we thought the Olympics would be too much for you talented lot to resist, so we asked you to send us some of your London 2012 themed art. We’ll be sharing some of our favourite pieces with you throughout the next few weeks.

It’s been a long time since we’ve decimated a magazine, grabbed the PVA glue and created a work of art that would make our mum reluctantly proud. With collages being a far off memory of a messy childhood, it’s easy to forget that with a little time, planning and a hell of a lot of skill they can create quite beautiful, interesting works of art. Caroline Kha has used this technique and produced a series of images inspired by the Games. The multidisciplinary artist created these hand-made collages as part of the ‘Gallery Games’ showing at the Debut Contemporary Gallery. Carly-Ann Clements

If you have some Olympic themed drawings, cartoons, comics or doodles send them to blog@timeout.com.
