The lovely Bowie Style had an open call, submissions for the third installment of her Print & Pattern books, this time Kid’s Patterns! And for those of you who have known me a while, I’ve been doodling for years, and every time I show them to anyone, the comment is always, “Those would make great kid’s _____________.” (fill in the blank) So imagine my delight to receive this post and submit some designs for consideration.

I must give a big thanks to all the wonderful people teaching/taking part in The Art & Business of Surface Pattern Design.
Such an inspired and lovely group where we are truly championing each other.

These images are a few of the kid’s patterns that didn’t make the cut. Enjoy!

I have been completely immersed (submersed?!) in the land of patterns since November. Everything, and I mean everything has taken a back seat since I started Beth & Rachael’s Do What you Love : Art and Business of Surface Pattern Design course. (And you will note, it is running again come April – and I highly recommend it for any of you with dreams of patterns) Believe it or not we are currently wrapping up week four of Module two!

Rachael Taylor has been kind enough to feature student work here and there on her blog since the start. However I fell seriously behind on the first Module, what with Christmas, and the joys of holiday travel in the airline industry, oh and the little pesky business of annual training to keep my day job….

On to Module two AND I have managed to keep up, more or less! So I’m absolutely tickled to have been included in this installment of what the peeps are doing over at ABSPD. Hope you enjoy the little showcase.

Stay tuned, there is bound to be a web revamp come the spring….
