more feathers

Just popping in quickly today as I'm still working away on getting my website finished. Here's a new pattern to coordinate with the feathers pattern I was working on as part of the MIID summer school - I'd planned to do a little collection, and as I get time I will add a couple more designs.
I don't know about you but I'm so glad it's Friday today. This week has been challenging and both me and the little lady have a horrible head cold/sore throat too. Bring on the weekend and less germs please!

I'm squireling away in the background at the moment building my website. It's coming along nicely but I still have a way to go. The good thing about this is that I'm discovering work that I did and forgot about, or started then stopped and didn't continue with, for some reason. So here is one of those patterns, which was half a pattern that I gave up on, but have now revamped

September Girl

I've set myself a little challenge to draw a person each month, for the next year. This is September Girl - sporting a dress with the feather pattern from my last post. It will likely be seasonal, a visual record of what the months are doing over the course of a year. This one is pretty autumnal in theme.

The last assignment for the make it in design Summer School was for a pattern featuring feathers.
I loved designing this one and I think I probably worked smarter/harder because I only had a few hours to complete it
I think some coordinates are needed for this so will work on some of those next...

Cute Characters

This months Tigerprint comp is for greetings card designs featuring cute characters. I'm really quite unpractised at character illustration, although love all things cute so this was a good one for me to enter. 
The competitions are a bit like a free brief to me. Regardless of the outcome, it's another couple of pieces for the portfolio, and I'm pretty sure there will be a whole lot of cute to look at in the competition gallery too. Bonus!
