Tribal Leaf Graphic Motif…

I signed up to “The Making it in Design School” Summer Camp which started a few days ago – I signed up to two of the levels but picked just one to work on as I have also signed up to the Lilla Rogers Global Talent Search 2014 which starts on Tuesday so that should keep me busy for a bit!

I scanned a doodle and tidied it up and had a play… I do love pulling shapes out of other shapes and I can get carried away so I have to stop!! I seem to end up with a leaf shape all the time!!?!?

Here’s some swim suit mock ups – the brief is for Retro Geometrics on Swim Wear (there are shorts too) and the colour palette was also chosen for inspiration.

I do like the bottom two … the bottom left needs changes to make it work… hmmm…

I decided to add some of the patterns to the Print All Over Me website to see how they look on different products – these are for sale so go check it out!

 

I will update with the final submission and link to the gallery which goes live later this week once it’s finally completed – I hope to submit today or tomorrow.

 

Procrastinating on the final piece for the summer school I went off on a slight different angle and got these…

I’ve decided to submit this one as I have other work to do and really needed to submit something by tonight.

More Sea Anemones…

I do like dismantling previous motifs … you end up with even more motifs for even more patterns… 🙂

I was playing about with my Sea Anemone ‘Mouth’ motif (see previous post) – and I transformed/blended and deleted bits of two of the below motifs…

hought I'd play with the shape a little - also switching colours around to see what happens...

… and ended up with these…

I have yet to the Sea Fleas leaping around some cups… I think I need some sleep first.

 

oops.. nearly forgot to add this one I did earlier… same motif as above with some various changes in stroke/colour etc.

Though I’d add a little burst of colour at the sides… bacteria anyone?

anemone mouth motif turned into a floral type shape... various selection of changes give in this collection.

I’m suppose to be getting on with a ‘underwater’ themed (unofficial!) assignment but I do like to play and dismantle patterns to create more motifs and patterns.

I basically keep going until my illustrator (or photoshop) goes stupidly slow due to the massive file size issues lol

 

nearly forgot to add these – formed from the ‘Tesla Pups” pattern mentioned in an earlier post.
