Colour_Collective #GOLD

Colour_Collective is on Twitter and provides a colour for every week. The challenge is to create an illustration/image with that colour. Medium and subject is up to the maker. At the beginning of the week a colour is given, seven days later all the participants will share their work on twitter and other social media with the same hashtag.

This is my first “Colour_Collective” illustration  #gold.

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!
