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.)

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…..
