Design 67 / 365

Here we go – got those mushrooms finished up. My process was to start in watercolor on paper, then pull them into illustrator and digitize the heck out of them so that they transformed into something new altogether. Looking at it, you’d never realize that this started out as actual paint on paper! Here’s a detail:

Then I created my pattern repeat!

See it on Redbubble! Until tomorrow!

Design 67 – unfinished

Late night Christmas shopping today so I ran out of time. Here’s a start of some watercolor mushrooms… definitely a work in progress. More tomorrow!

Business trip hiatus

I’m about to embark on a business trip to Australia tomorrow morning. Today has been madness getting prepped. 

I’ve made the executive decision that I will not be trying to produce a final product every single day — it’s just asking too much of myself. 

I will still draw, illustrate, and otherwise create. I will also still do 365 days of creations, but they won’t be in a row. 

See you in a little over a week!

Design 63 / 365 Days of Design

My new theme sprint is: plants! I started off with a repeating pattern of an orange tree. I’ll be able to quickly repurpose the pattern to do a lemon tree, and probably a pear tree.

I’m finding it quite simple to create these repeat patterns now, even when they are somewhat complex.

This particular orange tree pattern would likely suit best as a tablecloth. See it on Redbubble.
