surface pattern design

I’ve started a course in surface pattern design to see how I get on – I love pattern and colour and having had a go at the knitted bits and pieces I thought I’d try and expand my photoshop/illustrator skills and see what I can do…

so it’s been a very busy week trying to keep up with the exercises whilst entertaining two small children on the second week of half term (!!!), here is a bit of this weeks work, including my first ever patterns. I’m really pleased with them considering I’ve only just started, I thought they looked a bit Quentin Blake-y which is exactly what I was going for, next week we are doing more about adding colour, so I should be able to do more complicated layers. Very exciting!
