Print and Pattern!

I am over the moon to find that my work has been featured on both Print and Pattern and the Make it in Design blog today! Earlier in the year I submitted work for the “student showcase” after graduating from Rachael Taylor’s e-course The Art and Business of Surface Pattern Design and they chose to show my rainy sky pattern alongside the beautiful patterns created by some of my fellow students! I’m thrilled to bits and it just makes me want to make more patterns – in fact here are some below…

I’ve come to the end of my e-course in surface pattern design and it’s been great fun. I have learnt a great deal and I still have lots of exercises to catch up on. My tutor, the wonderful designer Rachael Taylor really packed the course full of information so I shall be going back over it all with a fine tooth comb over the next few weeks. For now here are some of my first patterns made with indian ink straight from the pipette and manipulated in photoshop and illustrator.
