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.This is a test print of one of the designsThis 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!Here’s a close-up of the print.
