ILLUSTRATION FRIDAY: SCANDINAVIAN

Here is another pattern I finished a longer time ago. Again I did it for Illustration Friday and the topic was Scandinavian (I´m sure, you guessed that already). I loved to do this one because it reminded me of my childhood in the 70´s. We used to have some of these patterns back then on different designs. Of course they often had more brown, orange and yellow colours.

But I do remember geometric shapes, birds, horses or zick-zack borders on bed linen, wallpaper, dresses, etc. For this pattern I combined the shapes of my childhood with scandinavian color hues and made it look northern. I like the fresh look of it and could imagine the design as napkins at the ikea store.
Big hugs,

ILLUSTRATION FRIDAY: ELECTRICITY

Weeks ago I finished this design for Illustration Friday. Originally I used less lightbulbs in the first place but wasn´t satisfied with it. I needed to see lots and lots of until I brought lots of light sources.
Here I show you the design I did at first.


And this is the one I did secondly. There is a lot more going on in there, don´t you agree? I´m not sure which one I like more. Normally I´am friend of plain, bold design but I also love light so very much.


 I think, I´ll go with the first design. The backround seems darker and I like the contrast it gives to the white and yellow light bulbs. It is still the same blue as the one of the second backround. I checked it twice because the second one looks so much brighter.
Which one is your favorite? The first or the second one? Are you more into bold, calm, quiet design or do you love it when there is a lot to discover and the eye can wander.
Greetings from my design room,

HELLO AGAIN

Hello beautiful,
how are you? Oh wow. I just realized it has been four month I didn´t do or post any patterns. Shame on me. I don´t know what happened. I worked a lot doing skillshare classes lately and filled my sketchbook with drawings. And I had a gig with the band I started singing with. Getting prepared for this was so much fun and time consuming as well because it took a lot of time to practise though.

Now I can´t wait to start once more doing portfolio practise and before my blog starts an unplanned hibernation I kick in and show designs I finished before my long break.
I hope, you enjoy the patterns.
Big hugs,
