This is a continuation of yesterday's showcase of images from the 'graduates' of 'The Art and Business of Surface Pattern Design' course -
"The Pushkar Bloom patterns express my interest in cultural diversity and my love of travels: the designs are inspired by mayan and middle eastern motifs, while the color palette comes from a recent trip to India. "
|Swirls and Leaves|
"A bright pattern influenced by foliage and organic materials, a subject matter that influences most of my work. My patterns tend to be use quite delicate shapes with overlapping layers."
"This pattern is warm, colorful and inspired by nature, just the way I like and try to live my life."
"I created these designs for my step-son's ( James Pope) bedroom and then painted them directly onto his walls. He was 12 at the time, so the skulls, bones, rock, and graffiti theme went down really well. We had all visited New York together the previous year when his father was alive, so he loved the skyline - so not to scale, by the way."
“I love creating simple hand drawn motifs and turning them into patterns. Like these winter berry silhouettes layered over a chevron background.”
"I have always been inspired by nature and the organic shapes that can be found within the environment. This pattern in particular was inspired by the pretty little flowers 'Morning Glory'."
"A colourful pattern inspired by the beautiful start of spring and burst of fresh flowers."
"From a photo of irises in my garden."
Freelance surface pattern designer and Illustrator from SW London, likes combining messy ink and digital colour, looking for fun projects, commissions, or licensing.
