Intergalantic Worms – the series

Back from holiday! And time to share my last project with you:
Right before my holiday Uppercase Magazine called for submissions for it’s new Surface Pattern Design Guide Vol. 2 book! During the online course, by Lilla Rogers, I already created a pattern design for the cover of this book, as an assignment and contest in cooperation with Uppercase Magazine.

This design I used as my first in a series of repeat patterns to submit. The next five images I created in a very simplistic and analog way, as seen in Julia Rothmans Skillshare class. (Draw on a square paper in the middle to the edges, cut the paper in four, tape them together again in some kind of cross-way, so that the undrawn edges become the middle, and finish/fill up the rest of the paper and colour.)

Yet again a new Recycle Hero is born

Let’s give our new Recycle Hero, born on the 1th of July a warm applause!!!
Although….I don’t think she’ll be needing it….

She likes to sunbathe and doing nothing but parade in her bikini and her golden jewelry. I’m not sure yet what kind of things we can expect from her and I certainly don’t think we’ll be seeing much of her during fall and winter time in the Netherlands.

I made this little Hero for my niece as a ‘baptism’ present (water, gold and crosses on the bikini).

Intergalantic Worms

This is my submission for the Make Art That Sells (part A, bolt fabric) in cooperation with Uppercase Magazine. The assignment was to illustrate a cover for a new Uppercase Magazine Surface Pattern Design Guide (part 2) – a mouth full.

I wanted to create a pattern with strange looking creatures trying to be pretty, in a futuristic scenery.
