Colour your world

This zipper pouch and consorts are the outcome of a Make Art That Sells “gift market” assignment by Lilla Rogers.

The imagery consist of a selection of my favourite things at home, illustrated with acrylic, gouache and pencil. The composition and extra colour is done in Photoshop.

I would love to see this for real (!).

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.

Herb pattern

After finishing my MATS A bolt fabric assignment I practiced a little with the BONUS ‘repeat pattern’ taught by Rachel Taylor. I used my herb material from the pasta dishes and moved them around in Illustrator.

This is what I came up with, and it was so much fun making it!
The next step is to learn how to make patterns more interesting and learn more about all the different kind of repeats. Because watching videos, making notes, and practicing one little repeaty-thing isn’t gonna make me a pattern queen. YET! – You noticed that last word?? ;)

But nevertheless I just wanted to share it with you, because I’m secretly a bit proud of the result, since it’s my first fancy looking repeat pattern……Well….not secretly of course, because it’s already all over the internet…..
