The second, and last, assignment in the Make It In Design Winterschool 2017 was creating a pattern with the theme: OPULENT, WONDROUS NATURE, with the words in mind “animals”, “eclectic”and historical”. (Click here to check out the first one.)

I’ve chosen to draw (fantasy) insects with a touch of Jugendstil details and some soft colours. This time I did a mock-up, just to see how it would be on a wall….also because I found the photo was very suitable for this pattern ;).


My moodboard (pictures via Pinterest; credits for the original makers, of course).




After inking all the illustrations with the help of my lightbox, I scanned them in, cleaned them up in Photoshop and made a composition in Illustrator.



I coloured the pattern in photoshop and voilá…
The first picture is the repeat pattern tile (quite a big one…).


This mock-up photo was course material, provided by Make It In Design.
Would you decorate your home with this wallpaper?
