this image (well, the scanned version) has been filed away somewhere on my hard drive for a long time. maybe even a year? it was one of those things i started, but then just really didn’t know where to go with it. i think my ideas for it were far too complicated and it just didn’t work out. since then, i’ve actually learned a lot more about patterns, but i realised what i needed to do was to keep it simple.
so, i cleaned it up, made the colours a little more vibrant, made it repeatable and went from there! i made a couple of variations where i added some hand drawn lines/curves into it too, which i also really like as it makes it a little more visually interesting. couldn’t resist making a little gif too!
