A big sigh of relief is making it´s way through the world. I purchased a new printer since my old one broke down a couple of weeks ago. Gosh, I missed it so much making patterns and I desperately felt the need of returning to this wonderful habit of mine. While waiting for the new one to arrive I made sketches sitting on my sofa before bedtime and so I have some stuff ready turning into new motifs.
Autumn is on here in Germany and the leaves started to fall off the trees. I see lots of animals around getting ready for winter and this year it seems they are really busier than ever collecting food. I guess, we´ll get a long, strong, cold winter if the animals are right.
Today I started with a hedgehog-pattern and created different looking animals for this and combined them with fonts, leaves, mushrooms and doodles.

While creating and making the pattern look quite busy I more and more felt the need of creating a second version, that looks cleaner, crisper and less playful. Here it comes for you to see.

Letting go of details is called the principle of reduction and since I am a big fan of it I like my second motif more. What do you think about it? Are you more a motif 1 type or motif 2 type? Please feel free to write me your comment about it.
Lots of love,
