collage butterfly pattern

my work, illustration, collage by
do you remember the retro inspired dog pattern i made a little while ago? i really wanted to make more animal patterns, so ..well, i did! this time it’s based around a monarch butterfly. i really enjoy making collage based patterns, so these are always fun to do. i think i’ll make a few more collaged ones. 
i’ll definitely be making a cat one, but i’m open to other animals too if you have any suggestions!

as always i like doing a smaller scaled version, but i often up liking the bigger one better. maybe i need to play with scale even more within my original swatches to make something that will work better visually scaled both up and down.

i also liked the look of the individual elements when i scanned them in. i was originally going to use the two bigger shapes as they were, but i felt they were too overpowering and cut them into smaller shapes, seeing as i wanted the butterfly to be the main focus instead of the shapes.
