SPOONFLOWER: CLASSIC BLUE

Pantone announced the color of the year 2020 a couple of weeks ago. It is called classic blue and now it won´t take long until the industry will start to react on this announcement, bringing out clothing and accessories in this color tone.


Spoonflower made a design challenge with the theme "Classic Blue" and there were four colors allowed that can be used creating a design. I started with fish in the water, then tried tiles in a kitchen and finally liked this motif the most. I always come back to clean, clear, bold designs.
Have a lovely Sunday, you all.

ILLUSTRATION FRIDAY: RED PANDA

There was Red-Panda-Week on Illustration Friday this week and I made some as a motif. My creative mantra for 2020 is "Do everything with love" but I still have to work on this quote until I am satisfied with my art. Right now it looks a lot like art for kids which is okay for me right now. No, it´s not.


I truly want to challenge myself to get better. I guess, there is a lot to do and I need to practise a lot more until I start to like what I am doing (if that´s possible at all). There is a goal in my mind and I´d love to reach it. I won´t give up, though.
Hugs and kisses,

SPOONFLOWER.VINTAGE.KITSCH

Okay, I promised myself to be busy designing in 2020. No more postponing things. No telling myself I have to do urgent errands before drawing a motif. This year I will get good, finding my own style besides building up my portfolio.


So, here is this weeks design challenge from Spoonflower. The theme was Vintage-Kitsch. I thought of a design packed with dolphins, flamingos, bambis and other pinkish stuff. It didn´t work for me and I reduced it again because I am more the bold designer. It is still Vintage and also Kitsch.

HELP AUSTRALIA

If you have seen the worldwide news last week you might have been informed about the devastating, apocalyptic bushfires in Australia. Each year there is a fire season during the Australian summer but this year it´s worse. Maybe because of climate change.
The dry and hot weather made it easy for blazes to start and spread. And that happened in a quick and concerning way in many parts of the country. In New South Wales alone, more than 100 fires are still burning.

Firefighters try everything they can, working hard to stop the infernos. People lost their lives and/or their homes. Half a billion animals were affected, especially wonderful koalas, Australias native furry friends.


It was heartbreaking, seeing these cute animals with burned fur and paws, trying to get water and help from humans. I donated money immediately to support humans and animals. And I did a mental rain dance with many others which helped shortly because rain came down. But not enough. The fires are still on. There is no way to find how big the damage is until the fires stop and nobody knows how long this will take. Today, I want to ask you for help. You could send positive, healing thoughts and prayers to Australia. You could also give support through a donation. Here are different informations how to give help to firefighters, humans and/or animals https://www.news.com.au/technology/environment/bushfire-relief-how-you-can-help-those-in-need/news-story/a0476ac3538b8c373f281ea6be204421
You could also do a rain dance, which I´d love to see. So, if you do so, please send me a picture of it.
Thanks for your help.
Lots of love,
