RETRO BUGS

Little critters are in town. Summer is here and it is still wet and rainy outside. So many creepers are outside crawling through the garden. I watched them hiking bravely and happy over concrete while they don´t get cooked in the hot summer sun this year.

I longed for lots of greens in my pattern because summer isn´t really starting yet. Wouldn´t it be nice having lots of these greenish friends in the garden? They would turn all places into happy spots and since green is the colour of healing the view would so totally support mental health.

Lots of hugs,

SUMMER SOUP BOWLS

Here comes my summer soup bowl pattern. Of course, the bowls are filled with a lovely, chilled, vegan Turmeric-Cucumber-Tofu-Soup, having a positive, cooling effect on tongue and body. For this design I loved mixing asian colours with scandinavian colours, creating am "asinavain" vibe.


Since I forgot how to do repeating patterns the challenge for today was trying to learn it once more. And it worked. Hooray. I did it. And I´m absolutely hooked. I need to do more, that´s for sure.

Have a lovely day with lots of cold soup.

WATERWORLD

I desperately want to try Sub-Yoga where you stand on a board on water doing Asanas. I think, it´s good to practice balance and staying totally centered. It´s more of a summer thing, I think because if you get overboard it´s not too bad, getting wet. It would be so cool, doing this on a hot day, early in the morning.

Of course I had to come up with a nice board-design for this, having Asanas printed on top of it. What a nice thing to have being a Yogi, living close to a lake. Well, I guess one day I´ll do it, packing my courage in my backpack, getting ready for a Yoga-lesson on board. Would you love to come, too?

KEEP WATERING YOURSELF

I love the designs of Lynn Guinta, Hallmark-Artist and Happy Maker. She is my artsy hero. You can find her wonderful, creative work here: https://www.thinkmakeshareblog.com/tag/lynn-giunta/ 

I truly admire her patience while designing cut paper collages. So I tried my best and finished this piece of letter-art. First I started cutting out all letters out of black cardboard paper and scanned them all in.

Then I cheated a little bit and mixed cut-out letters with computer fonts because the look pleased my eyes even more.

 

After drawing and creating the flowers, stars, heart, plants and arranging them on the letters I´m finally satisfied with the look. What do you think? Where could it be printed on? A lovely poster? A notebook cover? Or maybe an apron for gardeners? Feel free to send me your ideas about it. I´d be happy to hear from you.

Lots of hugs and kisses,

BOARDSPORTS

I missed the Spoonflower challenge with the motto "Boardsports" a couple of weeks ago and couldn´t wait to finish a pattern for it. Since the skateboards are often very colourful or just plain black I wanted to have a different design for my boards.

So, I used different shades of grey as board-backround and put scandinavian looking pattern on each board. Well, I guess, it´s not so much the taste of the skater scene but still it might attract stylish women getting a skater-equipment like this. It could start a new trend besides roller-skates.

INTERGALACTIC

I proudly present my intergalactic pattern. The orbit. Full of darkness, full of light, full of stars, full of rocketships and full of secrets. It´s mind-blowing that this place has no ending. Endless space.

To infintity and beyond. I guess, it´s the only place where we are safe from Corona right now. So let´s go there to meet up with friends, join concerts and go dancing. There is always a solution to every problem. #surfacepatterndesign #evelynrosner #intergalacticpattern #asolutiontoeveryproblem

Have a wonderful week full of happy moments,

ONCE THIS IS ALL OVER

I really miss getting in contact with my friends. There´s always this distance, no hugging and cuddling. I´m not complaining about it but still I can´t wait until we are back to a form of social closeness again. With this in mind I thought of a design that impresses this feeling of joy I´m looking forward to when we´ve overcome Covid.

Two nights ago I stayed up late in my art-room and cut all the letters out for this design. After scanning them all in I dabbed them in new colours and added patterns and details. Ta-daa. Here it is. The Once-this-is-over-Postcard or Poster:

WILD GRASSES

I can´t wait for #spring when nature is making it´s way back into my garden. I love it when all the #magical grasses and flowers start coming out bringing joy and beauty into this world. During the #lock-down times of #Corona I love spending time strolling through the fields ready to find amazing things I could draw into my #sketch-book.

This weeks #design-challenge of #Spoonflower is called "Wild Grasses". So it´s a good opportunity banning my grassy sketches on a pattern like this. And since I still and truly love #scandinavian colour combinations I choose blue and white. #surfacepatterndesign #wildgrasses #evelynrosner #scandi

Have a beautiful day today & stay happy and healthy,

BREAK ROOM WALLPAPER

When I think of a wallpaper design for a break room I imagine a pattern that is both relaxing and  bubbly at the same time. Employees enjoy this design while getting a break from work. Maybe it was a hectic morning full of phone calls and meetings. Then it might be relaxing looking at all this fish schwimming in a circle all the way round while having a sandwich or a nice cup of tea.

 Maybe the day was insane and filled up with conversations with complicated customers then it could be fantastic looking at the lively underwater creatures making their turns and having fun while following each other. Then the pattern could help while playing a turn of table tennis during lunch break.

This patterns works in a modern break room with lots of possibilities for members of staff spending time like sitting on swings or having a nice cruise on roller skates.

Bye for now,

FROM MY WINDOW

In these pandemic days we are often not allowed to leave our home. It depends in which country we live. In Germany we´re in the third lock-down right now and there is not much to do. The shops are closed, except grocery stores, many people spend time in home-office. Schools are closed and kids have their lessons online at home.

I try to spend time outside, having a 20-minutes walk in the nature every day. In between, while working on my computer I get a glimpse of the outside world, seeing the windows of the houses on the other side of the street. I love to discover wonderful plants in all different shapes and sizes. Sometimes humans show up when having a break on the computer. Then I smile and wave.

I hope, you are fine and good and healthy during these days of Corona.

CRYPTOZOOLOGY

I never heard the word Cryptozoology before so I had to Google it. I learned with the help of Wikipedia that Crypozoology is a pseudoscience and subculture that aims to prove the existence of entities from folklore record like Unicorns, Yetis, Aliens, and so on. Spoonflower made it a pattern design challenge so I thought of it and came up with this one.

I tried to create very bold looking figures and like the look of it. And I loved to create a warm and friendly blue in the backround with lots of stars to balance the cruel looking creatures. Now it looks like a pattern for little boys who love to hear more about entities like these.#surfacepatterndesign #evelynrosner #spoonflowerchallenge #cryptozoology #aliens #yeti #unicorns 

Have a wonderful day today.

Lots of love,

YELLOW AND GREY

Ooops, I did it again. Yellow and grey. I know, I have more of these colour combinations in my portfolio. But I can´t help it. There is this force inside of me that makes me do this. Whenever I try to pick a different colour my fingers start automatically to pick mustard and grey once more.;-) I love the doodley look of the inner white circles. It makes the perfect basic circles look so imperfect.

 I tried different motifs but decided to use just one because otherwise it looked so restless to me. Whenever I´m done with a design I ask myself "Do I love it?" Sometimes there comes an instant "Yes", sometimes there are doubts and/or I´m not able to answer that question. When my answer is "No" I don´t publish it and remind myself designing patterns with more passion and love. I can do better than this but right now, it´s totally fine.

Lots of love,

HAND DRAWN FLORALS

With this motif I wanted to create a pattern that looks like a chalkboard filled up with chalky flowers all over the place. It made me feel of getting chalk-dust on my hands while creating it. 


I love bringing natures treasure into my work especially when it´s reduced to plain shapes and forms. 
It is such a wonder and true magic wandering through the woods with eyes wide open. There´s always something that can be found and changed into a nice, new pattern. Very inspirational, though.

SPOONFLOWER TALISMAN

This took some time making a talisman design. I tried so many different ones from all over the world. Like Fatimas Hand or the Om Sign and wasn´t satisfied at all. In the end I landed in Japan and chose colours that could belong to this beautiful country.


I tried so many different designs on it like paper lanterns, waving cats, fans, symbols, letters but found, it looked so very restless. In the end I decided for a little circle motif. This is so much calmer and reassuring.
I´m not 100% satisfied with it yet so there is still growth possible.
Have a wonderful day full of love,

THE YEAR OF THE OX

 On February 12th, 2021 started the chinese zodiac of the Ox. If you were born in the year of the Ox (2009, 1997, 1985, 1973, 1961, 1949, 1937) you might be known for honesty, diligence, strength and determination. Before taking any action, Ox will have a definite plan with lots of details which leads often to gread success.


They are not much influenced by other people, following their path to their own ideals. The male Ox has ambitions for life and puts focus to work and family. The female Ox is faithful and traditional and takes good care of the kids education.

Of course the start of the Year of the Ox made me want to make a design of a little, cute-looking herd of oxen. Here they are. Happy and healthy, ready to chew some fresh, green gras while celebrating 2021.

Have a wonderful day today. Maybe you know somebody who was born in the Year of the Ox.
