Second to last day of the geometric rainbow designs. I’ll do my last one tomorrow and then go back to animals. However, I may do rainbow geometric animals!

I had a request for shooting stars or sound waves. I tried rainbow shooting stars but I wasn’t happy with the result. Then I tried offset sound waves and couldn’t get the repeat to work well. So I compromised with the following, which was much easier to repeat.

See it on Redbubble!

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:

See it on Redbubble!

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!

Yesterday’s chickadee pattern was cute, but it was a little too bland holiday pattern for my taste, like something you’d see in a wrapping paper bundle from a big box store.

I wanted to do something fun with the chickadees, and more to my taste. So I threw away the plant elements and decided to do some mid century shapes. Add in some funky color schemes and we have a design that is much more to my taste.

Today I wanted to do a cute black capped chickadee design. I get hundreds of these round little cuties in my yard everyday, and I enjoy watching them with my son. 

This design ended up being a lot more winter holiday than I intended. I think it’d make lovely wrapping paper, don’t you?

I did four colorways, two softer and two bright. I like them all equally, I have to admit! Here’s a link to the turquoise colorway on Redbubble.

Until tomorrow!

Sooo, I’m not sure what happened today. I knew I wanted to make a pattern from the giraffes from yesterday. Doing a repeat with such tall, thin shapes really created some design challenges. I knew that I wanted to do some horizontal lines to offset the tall shapes. That turned into the idea of a 70s inspired sunset.

This was a day where I just had to commit because it’s getting late. I’m not convinced it works – but again, it’s almost 11 and I’m really ready for bed. So up it goes.

I also wanted to do a standalone piece for tees and other things that are not all over print. The standalone piece I actually rather like. It’s the repeat pattern that I can’t even tell if it’s any good. Anyway – here it is! I have two Redbubble links:

I watched a little bit of Blue Planet with my son tonight and was inspired by the massive schools of sardines and their quick, synchronized movements. And then they all got chompy-chomped by tuna, and then dolphins, and then sea birds, and finally sharks. I mean really, they had no chance whatsoever.

I ran into some real technical difficulties today that really pushed the limits of Illustrator as well as my patience. I finally pulled everything into Photoshop to finish it off and get the colors closer to where I wanted them. I never really got it where I wanted it, but I do like the final product nonetheless.

Because repeat patterns don’t work well on tees that are not all over print, I also did a standalone graphic for those products as well.
