I love how my newest pattern designs look on these cozy quilts! On the first one are my "Little Grunt Sculpin" and "Constellation of Starfish" pattern designs; the second one has my new "Cupcake Dreams" and "PomPoms" designs. These would make great gifts (I'd like to get one!), don't you think?
Just wanted to share the beginnings of a new collection I am calling "Little Grunt Sculpin". Grunt sculpins are one of my favourite fishes, they are super funny and cute! I suggest checking them out on Youtube. They are sometimes called "bizarre" and "ridiculous" and don't really swim but rather scoot along the sea bottom!
I love birds with BIG FEET! So I've been working on my pattern designs featuring water birds...herons, oystercatchers and scarlet ibis! This collection will be available at both Surtex and Blueprint Show 1 this May in NYC where I will be showing with Nerida Hansen Print & Textiles! If you want to see some of the coordinates in this collection, check out my Fauna page in my Portfolio! Happy Weekend everyone!
How fun is this? My "Friendly Bear" sock design won an "honourable mention" in the Corgi Sock Design Competition! Corgi is a UK company established in 1892 that supplies luxury socks to the Royal Family! Check out the announcement of the winners on the Corgi Socks Blog!
Just wanted to post another sneak peek of the surface patterns I've been designing to get ready for Surtex 2018 in NYC in May! Here are some cute and fresh patterns in a brand new collection I've been working on! Let me know what you think!
Just thought I would post this round-up of some of the new patterns and placement prints that I designed during the super fun 10-week Folio Focus course! Can't wait to do the course again in 2018!
Week 8's brief for Folio Focus was to design Halloween characters! So here is a placement pattern design for party plates and some coordinating repeat patterns!
Had a lot of fun with this one! Decided to keep it very graphic and geometric for a fun cityscape placement print and some co-ordinating repeat patterns! Can't wait to see what's in store for Week 7!
Although this week was all about lettering, I really had fun designing patterns for my ceramics collection! Onwards next week for designing for wood products!
I just finished Week 3 of the MATS Creating Collections for Home Decor course. So much fun, super hard work, and all very inspiring. Here is the presentation board that I did for it. I think I can see improvement over the last 3 weeks! I think!
