Patterns around the house #July’16

The 15th of July I’ve started a weekly Instagram project to get more pattern minded. Last year and this year I found myself buying more clothing with patterns all over it. It’s a nice contrast seeing them laying between my dark colored stuff in the closet and I find it a nice change to wear them as well!

To get even more pattern minded (for creative purpose) I thought I’d collect them as well, captured in a pic as reference material. And I thought, like many people do, Instagram is a good medium for this…It brightens my account too!

So…every week a pattern, shared on Instagram (and Facebook) and I’ll post them once a month on this blog, categorized ‘PATTERNS AROUND THE HOUSE’, found in the right menu.

This one’s for July!

As I’m also doing the course ‘Make Art That Sells, part B’, I sent in a submission for Uppercase’s editorial assignment as well (click here for the first one).
As an artist or creative you have favorite things to wear, to work in or just to picture yourself in, although you’ll never wear it (e.g. because a lack of money, or inconvenience):

I like to picture myself in a big furry coat with some Marni and Gucci references, with a touch of sweet femininity (the flowers and pastels).
My tattoos, for some reasons they’re all about eyes in some way, had to be in the picture too.  And I’ve also just purchased a very cool blouse with eyes, quite similar to one of my tattoos…. So of course this all had to be a part of my editorial ‘fashion portret’.
I added plants, the night and a strange place too, whereas those are my recurring fascinations in illustrations lately.
