I Didn't post yesterday, one thing led to another, led to another and my day was done...
I did sneak in some drawing here and there and came up with this simple little tulip motif.
I have been working on it in illustrator today, playing with live trace,
building it with shapes and with the pattern maker.
Adapted from a mid century modern design motif.
As you can see not very nice.
|re-worked with the pen tool and shapes.|
|But What about a pattern?|
Can you imagine? Originally I was thinking about using it a border for an illustration I am working on but as I play and yes by playing I also mean learning I can see how to take it beyond just a simple motif.
|Love the 70's garish colours!|
I love repeating patterns that start with a simple motif, that gets expanded and turned into an evolving complex idea.
I keep seeing whale tales, fish scales and scalloped edges!
Can you see it evolving?
