Digital Fabric

I’m really excited about this new class I’m taking this quarter. I think it will open up a whole new world of opportunity for me to develop and experiment with my patterns. Our first project is based on the idea of “kitsch” or “camp”. I have been sketching and working with wood grain and tree rings as imagery for this project.17-01-08-115.jpg19-01-08-072.jpgThis is a test print of one of the designs19-01-08-073.jpgThis is my second design where I’ve attempted to draw a more realistic wood grain but used unrealistic colors. I think I’m going to try using more natural colors or even shift completely and use all pastels. those photos will be up soon!19-01-08-075.jpgHere’s a close-up of the print.

  1. I love where you are going with your circles! The woodgrain and knots in the grain look wonderful. I went to the Christian Lacroix exhibit at the Louvre and took a photo for you of circles/flowers he had on a dress that reminded me of your circles. I cant wait to see everything else youve been doing! I miss you!!
