I’ve been looking forward to putting my Thursday birds in a pattern…and today’s the day.  I just love drawing them and look forward to much more creative experimenting here.  They remind me of a children’s book illustration, one of my favorite forms of art.  Happy Friday, people!


Surface Pattern Design…My New Adventure

I’ve taken on something big, something really big.  I’m learning Adobe Illustrator.  This is huge, guys.  It’s all because I came across a story about a surface pattern designer and thought, no way…that sounds AMAZING!  It turns out Illustrator is the starting point.  I’m hoping to post several times each week something related to this journey…sketches, Ai images, inspiration, color palettes, etc.  So if anyone is interested, feel free to follow along.  Away we go!


Learning to copy and rotate an image, as well as create a color palette for it, took a couple of hours.  But the end result produced these cute little guys, so, you know, it’s all good 🙂
