OK, today’s my last day of this color scheme. Maybe! Tomorrow I will be either back to animals, or I may try my hand at plant-based patterns. Trees, leaves, and of course, florals.

I will no doubt use this color scheme again in the future, it’s served me well this week.

Today I went for a pattern that may work better for children’s products: rainbow rain and blue clouds. I could see working this into a baby blanket with a matching stripe as a supporting pattern.

See it on Redbubble.

Well, in the interest of getting to bed on time I decided to put my already illustrated badgers and raccoons together into a single pattern and play with a much softer color palette and a more open design.

I’m not sure it works, and it probably won’t be going onto my final portfolio – but it was an excellent exercise for me to try something a little bit new.

It might work as a kids pattern with it’s soft colors and cartoony badgers. Sometimes I have to look at these things a month later to decide. See it on Redbubble!
