Fabric design – Lino rings turquoise

I’ve had a blogging hiatus but definitely not a creative one. The last few months I’ve been mainly focusing on pattern designs. I’ve opened a shop on Spoonflower with my first ten uploaded designs at https://www.spoonflower.com/profiles/quirkymundo

It’s what happens when you cross a vector pattern with a scanned lino print texture and a nice blue colour.

Lots of circles

I remember way back when I was doing a BTEC in Graphic design I did a project that needed a design for a Windsor and Newton Gouache box. I painstakingly painted a complicated circles pattern using said gouache. 27 years later and I’m back to drawing circles.

I was so happy with the result of that project that it was the turning point that convinced me that the graphic design option was going to work out. Which it did, for many years, until it didn’t any more. In hindsight I think it was actually the circle pattern that I was happy with, more than the graphic design elements that surrounded it.

Hindsight it a wonderful thing and all that… 😉
