Apparently I made a lot of patterns over the past 100days!

Apparently I made a lot of patterns over the past 100 days! Here are 100 little images. Probably 85 or more are completed(ish) patterns and the rest are filled in with elements that will become patterns or are patterns in progress. This is my third time doing and I love it! It’s so good to help you get started if you’re having trouble getting yourself to make art (or whatever) regularly or to dive deep into one topic or theme or material or technique! I’ve loved doing these patterns over the past 100 days and I have no plans to stop. But now, instead of making new ones every day, I’m going to revisit my favorites, tweak them and turn them into collections. If anyone out there wants to license any or commission any illustrations or patterns, you know where to find...

I’m getting too caught up in the tiny details of editing the individual elements and losing sight of the bigger plan, which was to learn more and get better at pattern design. It’s not to get lost in tiny details in photoshop and illustrator. I think there’s a metaphor in there...

My obsessive nature

My obsessive nature

My obsessive nature hasn’t allowed me to take a break from this one like I planned. Here, finally, is a repeat with all the leaves but just one of the women. I think I like it…but stay tuned to see the other one creep back...
Here’s what it looks like…

Here’s what it looks like…

Here’s what it looks like when you are building the most complicated repeat and you’ve tried and deleted 872 versions and are finally getting somewhere. Maybe.
Only got to spend a few minutes on this one today

Only got to spend a few minutes on this one today

Only got to spend a few minutes on this one today before my Apple Pencil died and I’m too tired to wait for it to recharge. Picture a pattern of leaves and vines with these two pretty women tangled up in them. That’s the plan, at least. Patterns often end up going in unexpected...
