This week has been all about flowers and pattern making over at Binky McKee, still working hard on setting up a shop on Redbubble. I am absolutely fascinated by pattern-making, but have never learned to do it using the tools in Photoshop until now, and it has been great fun. I became curious to see what my HEW drawings would look like in a repeat pattern, so I mocked up this simple tiled design from a detail of Before There Were Saturdays (2015). I know it's rough, but interesting! I am excited about learning how to do it properly, and the possibilities for making drawings based on pattern.
Thanks for visiting, see you next week!
Welcome to my blog, where I share what I have been doing during the week.
I have at last copied my nom-de-plume Binky McKee blog entries from here to their own blog, having given the illustration website an overhaul. Peace and tranquillity may resume here in the somewhat quieter nature of Heather Eliza's work, while Binky has her own rather more colourful Weekly. Please visit Binky McKee if you would like to visit!
