I continue to indulge my love of rainbows, geometric design, and hearts. And polka dots. Put it all together and what do you get? This:

In other good news, I have yet another artwork featured on Redbubble’s home page! Design 42 – My raccoon pattern. My birds have been selling quite well, even as they’ve moved down the page and below the proverbial fold, so it’s exciting to have another one featured. Yay!

Wanted to do something a little playful today, and a bit more layered than I’m used to doing. I actually really love how this came out. I did the same color scheme that I’ve been doing, but in a asymmetric diamond pattern on top of a polka dot pattern. It’s fun and looks great on the various Redbubble products. “Design 58 / 365 Days of Design” Womens T-Shirt by divafern | Redbubble

I also created a standalone pattern that you see framed below:

I’ve gotten to the point where I have to look up what number I’m on! I’m so proud that I’ve made it this far – but I know I’ve got a long way to go.

Today I did bees! I love bees – they are so graphic and of course so essential to the wellbeing of our planet and all its inhabitants. 

I am sticking with my ‘stamped’ style of illustration for these. It’s not my only illustration style, but I did want to try to have a consistency as much as possible for this set of animal illustrations and patterns.

Speaking of patterns, today is the standalone illustration. Tomorrow will come the 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!
