over the past couple of years i’ve started or ended the year with a new pattern, so i’d like to continue that tradition.
i wanted to create something that has a textile feel to it. i don’t really know what i actually mean by that, but i do feel these patterns would look good on fabric. i really like how the pattern is easily scalable and versatile too.
it works very well with different layers of colour and the squares could easily be moved around to different configurations too. going to have fun playing around with this one in the future!
i’m really looking forward to making more patterns and collages this year and hope to improve my skills further. i know this only comes through practice – though making lots of work, and i’ll be really pushing myself to share more of it on the blog than i have the previous year as well as generally trying to push myself out of my comfort zone.
i hope you like these, and happy new year to you all!
ps. if you’re interested in buying these patterns as prints, phone cases and various apparel you can do so at society6 and redbubble. if you’d like to license these, or commission a pattern or collage, please get in touch.
recently i was commissioned to make an advent calendar and some portrait images for myself.de (the same people i have been doing the horoscope illustrations for) and obviously on the first of december it was released!
as i’m not an overly christmassy person i was glad to be given the opportunity to do pretty much what i wanted, as long as it had a retro theme, and a slightly similar feel and colour scheme to the illustrations i made a couple of years ago for strand arcade.
if you click through to the calendar you can see the portraits behind each number, but i’ve merged them all together below too. i thought they looked like a cool girl band, ha!
i wonder if i’ll get a christmassy commission next year? here’s hoping! if you want me to illustrate for you – christmas themed or not – please get in touch and we can work together to make something fantastic and unique.
