Day 34 / 365 Days of Design

Today I took my same pigeons, but did them in a completely different style – my favorite faux linocut or screen print style that I used on my Herstory Portraits. Then I filled in the gaps with little abstract shapes that evoke the possibility of crumbs, or maybe small plants.  It’s a relaxing pattern in gentle colors that I think looks best close up where you can see the textural details.

Day 33 / 365 Days of Design

I finished my pigeon pattern! Drew 4 more pigeons for a total of 5 and created a repeating pattern, plus a non-repeating pattern for standard tee shirts.

This was a fun one. Enjoy! Here it is on Redbubble.

Until tomorrow!

Day 32 / 365 Days of Design

Into my second month. I am patting myself on the back!

Today, I wanted to spend a little more time on a single element that will be worked into a full pattern. My idea is to have a flock of NYC pigeons walking around as the pattern – an organic, scattered pattern rather than a well defined grid.

Here’s my first pass at the style, although I’m not completely convinced that it’s what I’ll end up with. I’m gonna sleep on it. Just one pigeon today. Once I’m really happy with the style I’ll finish up 6 or 7 more pigeons to create the pattern from.

I did put this up on Redbubble, too! See ya tomorrow!
