Todays experiments instead of doing my Tax…

ok… I’ve done most of my finance tax sheet for last tax year but have yet to submit it online… I do prefer to get it over with but yet I’m still procrastinating and playing with patterns in Illustrator – I have yet to do more on the underwater theme project… it’s started and sat on an Illustrator art board so getting there slowly.

I’m also doing the Creativebug’s…

How many online courses can I sign up to????

I have too many ideas and add in nervousness and my amazing procrastination/avoidance skills which all equals a huge amount of faffing… I’m becoming an expert in faffing! gosh now there’s something I wanted to achieve!!

I want to do something more focused – it doesn’t help that I don’t want to leave my photography behind and trying to have a brand that has two very different styles makes it awkward to bring together.

 

anyway… back to today’s ‘play with doodles’ motif and pattern making.

now back to stuff I’m suppose to be doing 🙂

Triangular Tips

the following patterns came originally from the blue shell like doodle (lower left corner)

random doodles and mark makings

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.

World’s quickest repeat pattern collection…

I found out about the Tiger Print website and the B&W competition for M&S half an hour before it’s deadline.

I created these but whilst uploading I realised I had grabbed one of the hi-res images so had to start again… of course the deadline closed at that moment – gargh.

Oh well… at least I know I can get a collection together in record time ;-P

more homework… and an update on the ‘wavy’ pattern

 

I have a tendency to go off on tangents especially if I have several projects on the go.

I need to reread and concentrate on one item whilst doing this course.

The accidental tomato...

 Paint blobs…

I wasn’t too keen on my paint blogs and experiments in different paints but after seeing them close up in photoshop I’ve changed my mind.

I need to rescan each bit at a higher rate but I love the cracks in the paint and if you blow up paint ‘splodges’ of fingerprints it takes on a whole new dimension.

The same thing for a couple of pages of pen ink that I blew all over the page… so close up scans will have to be done on those… I have a long list of things to do.Image

This the original sketch that I took the motifs from… some are formed from twisting the image over itself so that elements are mirrored into themselves if that makes sense.

Wavy Collection

I did have a little play with some of the forms from the ‘Wavy’ Doodle I did mentioned in my previous post… liking these ones a lot more.
