SPOONFLOWER: DOG DAYS

Oh, I loved this design challenge very much. It was called Dog Days and I had so much fun drawing bones and paw prints, kennels, dogs and flags. I don´t have a dog though but two cats, two turtles and three chicken but I loved designing this pattern for dog lovers.


I thought of a nice neckcloth for stylish dogs that love to show off while going on a nice, chilly walk through autumn woods. Of course, the other dogs that came by will get jealous and desperately feel the longing of purchasing this neckcloth as well for themselves.
Lots of love,

SPOONFLOWER: LIMITED COLOR PALETTE

With this pattern I tried to form two designs out of the limit of a colour of four. The first try is a clean and sharp retro design out of circles that change size constantly as you can see here.


The second try is this dot-painting heart that´s made out of the same colors. I wanted it to look like a color vision test or eye test. What can I say: It was a lot of work to set all dots.


It took me days to get the second one done as you can imagine. But I do quite like the result. Sorry, I am out of words today. I´d love to write more but my head doesn´t want to. I´ll be better next time.
Shine on,

ILLUSTRATION FRIDAY: FOX

I am really a better person when I am able to design. It makes me feel happy, centered, grounded and I love going into my ritual of designing. I also decided not to stop creating until I fall in love with the pattern I am working on. This has such a huge impact on my work. I give love in and it comes right back to me when I look at my artwork after finishing it. I totally underestimated the power of a good feeling putting into the creative process.


Another Illustration Friday is knocking on the door at midnight with an animalistic motto. I am sure, you´re able to tell what it is. Exactly, it´s fox and I was totally happy to draw these lovely, cute, fury friends. I know they are quiet hip right now in the pattern scene and this has truly a reason. I love their look and they are easily done. #illustrationfriday #weeklydesignchallenge #fox #surfacepattern
Big hugs,
