Design 69 / 365

It’s after midnight – I did what I set out to do. I drew some bees and another coneflower and fashioned it into a repeating pattern

I really did like how it looked extra large and not repeating, so on most of the Redbubble items I didn’t actually do a repeat.

I’m particularly fond of the muted blue-green that I did for the background.

See it on Redbubble!

I’m still on plants and decided to finally do it – a flower. I chose a cone flower, I find them wonderful – substantial and unconventional. I started by painting but realized I wanted to pull it back and just do a lovely line drawing. Here’s where I ended up.

Tomorrow, the plan is to draw some ore variations, then maybe some bees, and put them all together into a pattern repeat. Today, I just have the single image.

See it on Redbubble, where I put it on a reddish pink background – my favorite shade of pink.

Design 43 / 365 Days of Design

Decided to do badgers today. I got the dreaded wheel of death when working in Illustrator and lost all my work and had to go back and start again. UGH.

Like I did with the raccoons, I did the illustrations today and will create a pattern tomorrow. They are so similar in style I think that I will do a pattern combining the two here in the near future!

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!

Day 36 / 365 Days of Design

I was a bit aimless tonight. I started with an elephant, then a hedgehog, then thought about doing a quail, and finally decided to do a sheep. It turned out pretty cartoony, but it’s pretty cute!

In other news, my pigeon pattern from Day 33 has been featured on Redbubble’s home page in the FOUND section! It’s gotten a ton of likes, and I’ve already made many sales today. It really made my day.

I did both a single illustration and a repeat pattern for the different items on Redbubble.

 

 

Day 10 / 365 Days of Design

Yes, I’m changing the name of my challenge. Practically no one’s watching (and if you are, Hi!). I think it’s catchier, and it can encompass all the different things I’m doing. And I don’t have to remember if it’s Print and Pattern or Pattern and Print.

Today I put my new found Illustrator skill to use to create something I’ve always wanted to do; It’s not really an optical illusion, but it’s optically interesting. I played a lot with color, but ultimately, I found it to be most striking in black and white.

Here it is on Redbubble!

I found this to be a compelling pattern so I threw it onto a few other products as well. Here it is on a Flare dress on my Art of Where store where I oriented it lengthwise:

And on a beanie, which I may just have to order for myself:

That’s it for me! Until tomorrow!

Day 2 of 365 days of print and pattern

Today I know I wanted to do something extremely minimalist and in black and white. I started with a line, some circles, and realized it looked like a geometric plant. I ran with that thought and created this geometric garden that reminds me a bit of a circuit board. Circuit board garden?

Anyway, I do love me a geometric minimalist pattern. I have 365 days to explore this side of me!

Here’s the pattern I created and how it looks on a shirt. I’d absolutely wear that shirt.

 

See it on my Redbubble site and see ya tomorrow!
