So someone on my Facebook page quipped that my pink koalas looked naked. Go ahead, navigate back a day and look. Now that she said that I can’t unsee it – they look naked to me.

Thing is, I tried going standard gray koala and it was just plain boring. And my line on this piece isn’t quite good enough to just do black and white drawing style. My husband suggested rainbow. It was a little intense, so I decided to do rainbow ears instead. 

Took me all damned day! I have no idea if I like it or if it’s any good; ask me in a couple of months. Here it is on Redbubble

Another request – raccoons! Today I focused on drawing three different raccoons that I will fashion into a proper repeating pattern tomorrow. Today I arranged them in a cute little raccoon tableau. It works best as a sticker, I think. See them on Redbubble!

Sooo, I’m not sure what happened today. I knew I wanted to make a pattern from the giraffes from yesterday. Doing a repeat with such tall, thin shapes really created some design challenges. I knew that I wanted to do some horizontal lines to offset the tall shapes. That turned into the idea of a 70s inspired sunset.

This was a day where I just had to commit because it’s getting late. I’m not convinced it works – but again, it’s almost 11 and I’m really ready for bed. So up it goes.

I also wanted to do a standalone piece for tees and other things that are not all over print. The standalone piece I actually rather like. It’s the repeat pattern that I can’t even tell if it’s any good. Anyway – here it is! I have two Redbubble links:

My friend requested a giraffe print. I decided to do the giraffes today and try to work them into a pattern tomorrow. They didn’t exactly come out as I was expecting, to be honest. I will see what I can do with them tomorrow.

It is fascinating how you can start out to do something very specific and what comes out the other side is nowhere near where you were intending to go! You can see all the iterations on Redbubble!
