I don’t know if I already told you this, but I love illustration very much. In fact, it’s more about pretty drawings than illustration so to speak. I recently realized, after my personal creative questioning day, that I missed drawing from observation. I missed creating figurative images my own way (I created quite a few abstract patterns lately). So I decided to draw some coffee makers (I love coffee, so I love coffee makers!). Here is the process I went through and what I created from this idea!
As some of you may have noticed, there is in the sidebar of the blog a Pinterest board, called “Pattern Inspiration”. I use Pinterest to gather tons of patterns I like, for different reasons. My goal was to create some kind of a unique and personal pattern library that I would use for inspiration.
I didn’t have much time these days to work on new patterns, but a few days ago I experimented something interesting I thought I should share with you.
One of my biggest challenge learning how to design, not only patterns, but good patterns, is to find my own style, one that will, fortunately, be recognizable among the thousands of other styles of different talented surface pattern designers.
