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!
Thought I would give you another "sneak peek" of what I've been working on. This super fun collection features cute and friendly vehicles zooming along on their merry ways, looking forward to travelling adventures! I conceived of this collection for children, but I think I would love to have these pillows too! These new patterns and many, many more will be showing with Nerida Hansen Print & Textiles at BOTH Surtex and Blueprint Show 1 in May in NYC. Come see!
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!
Having a grand time designing new surface patterns for Surtex 2018! Come see me at Booth 2524 at the Javits Centre NYC, May 20-22 2018! This pattern will be developed into a new collection...stay tuned!
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!
Already into Week 9 of Folio Focus! This week's brief was People, and although the brief was for a self-portrait, somehow these people morphed into Valentine's day patterns! Let me know what you think as this is still a WIP! I guess it could be me, since I have glasses exactly like hers!
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!
