I’ve opened a shop on Creative Market, Pattern Kick, where I’ll be selling kick-ass prints and patterns… Yes, you heard me, kick-ass! That’s the plan anyway… This has been a dream of mine for a long time, but I somehow always managed to find an excuse to not to go ahead with it… I ran out of excuses at last…
I’ve got you a Christmas present… I managed to get my hands on an early review copy, kindly supplied by the publisher, of the new Print & Pattern book: Nature, and I’m gonna give you a little preview to get you salivating!
The book is
coming out in January 2017 out now. This is the latest book in the series, based on the super popular Print & Pattern blog run by Marie Perkins (aka Bowie Style).
I found this amazing collection of photographs, Macro Reef Dwellers: A Retrospective, by Felix Salazar and had to share them with you. Colour and patterns in nature, you might agree, are a great source of inspiration.
I’ve also created a colour palette for each photograph which you are very welcome to use in your own designs if you like them.
Ok, so I have a confession to make… I’m addicted… To Skillshare classes!
I’ve been a member of Skillshare for a couple of years now and my compulsion for finding and joining their fabulous classes hasn’t dwindled, if anything it’s increased. Any minute I have free I’ll be glued to my iPad learning new tricks. This can be while I’m having breakfast/lunch, while relaxing on the sofa (tv doesn’t do it for me anymore) or, let’s be open, on the loo, as I don’t like the feeling that my life is flushing away down the toilet ;-).
