More pattern-making and surface design pages from my sketchbook. I’ve been spending a lot more time sewing than drawing lately, but with the holidays fast approaching, I really need to get back to the drawing table to finish up a few gifts. Have a lovely week, everyone– and thanks for stopping by.
Cactus pattern! Since I’ve begun sewing clothes and plushies and working with fabric more, I’ve become quite interested in pattern and print design. This is a page from my sketchbook, in original colors as scanned, and then a color variation created in Photoshop. I flipped a couple of pots around to balance it, since everything in the original seems to lean slightly to the right,and filled in a few “mountain ranges” in the background texture. What do you think? Original or Crispy?
Perhaps my next challenge will involve patterns and prints… I do love texture, visual and/or tactile. Definitely on my To-Do List for 2015: Create and upload fabric designs to Spoonflower.com; create my own textiles.
As for the Rocked that Look series, I’ve cooled off on it a bit for the moment in order to redirect, to push more into experimental techniques. I also have quite a lot of holiday gift production to catch up on at the mo’… Where does the time go?
I’ve been playing with pattern and surface design a little bit. I think this pile of cats would look great as linocut print,and I fantasize that I’ll get around to that someday… It only took me 3 months to add a little bit of color to the original doodle…
Now available in my society6 shop! Leggings, even!
Right now I’ve got about 5 projects in the “almost done” phase, including my Halloween costume, Thank You cards for my friend’s wedding, and a sexy iguana plushie tentatively named Inigo. All coming soon to le blog!
Thanks for dropping by!
