Raising a chilled can in memory of those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our way of life. Let’s honor that with our choices and respect for each other.

The can pattern in this mockup started as a geometric watercolor I did. I then vectorized it and turned it into a pattern. Then I mapped that onto this three dimensional can and superimposed it into a photo I took at Black Balsam. The font used here is Caravan.

Here’s a watercolor tile pattern I completed recently. I’ve really been diving into geometric designs and a pattern is a logical next step from those.

Stay tuned for some more progress on this and a fun little application of it in pattern form.

I could do it faster and more accurately in the computer. But something is lost in the process of that exchange for efficiency.

Doing it by hand I am actually working on something else deeper within. Something less tangible, less economical, with more subtlety of presence.

Fabric Design Collaboration

I’m about to hand pattern some fabric as a collab with @aniliaj on a top she’s sewing together for her wardrobe. Which by the way, can I say how awesome she is, that she makes most of her own clothes. She also does lessons. Check out her feed and give her a shout if you’re in Asheville and want to learn to make your own clothes too and like to wear dresses, skirts and girly tops.
