first exercise… sketchbook to pattern

sketchbook-mugs-to-digital-pattern-web

So this is my first creative exercise from the Surface Pattern course I’ve signed up for. I’ve already learnt so much from reviewing module 1 yesterday (I’ve dived straight into module 2 because I was too impatient for module 1 to start in August!) Can’t believe how intense this course is already… I’m finding myself completely absorbed by it. Already noticing patterns everywhere!! 

Anyway… for the first exercise I chose to draw the mug on my desk and ended up simplifying it to create a motif (although I was supposed to embellish it). Then after scanning it into the computer I worked it up into a complete pattern. I never thought about creating motifs in this way… it’s a bit of a revelation to me!

Thank you for all the kind comments on my last post. It’s great to be back blogging again!

Hi, the course is great isn't it! it's such a shame I have a busy week at 'real'work as I am so inspired and motivated at the moment! I love the simplicity of your pattern, it has a real 70s vibe about it - I love that style.

Love the colours you have chosen and think a handle would have just muddled your simple shapes. Kx
