I wasn’t even gonna do a design tonight, but then I realized I’d feel like a heel if I didn’t.
I started out thinking I was going to do an animal of some kind, but ran into a photo of some pussywillows and decided to do a simple pussywillow illustration.
Not sure if this will translate into a repeat pattern tomorrow or not, but I’m pretty pleased with how this turned out. See it on Redbubble!
I watched a little bit of Blue Planet with my son tonight and was inspired by the massive schools of sardines and their quick, synchronized movements. And then they all got chompy-chomped by tuna, and then dolphins, and then sea birds, and finally sharks. I mean really, they had no chance whatsoever.
I ran into some real technical difficulties today that really pushed the limits of Illustrator as well as my patience. I finally pulled everything into Photoshop to finish it off and get the colors closer to where I wanted them. I never really got it where I wanted it, but I do like the final product nonetheless.
Because repeat patterns don’t work well on tees that are not all over print, I also did a standalone graphic for those products as well.
