Kennard and Kennard : Charming Coastal Creatures
Oh dear. I swear I posted something in August but it turns out that I haven't. Whoops. And now it is the end of September.
So what have I been doing since I last wrote? I spent 2 weeks in August working on a quick studio job which took a lot of my time. Then I immediately had to get a greeting card submission done and then work on my book job. Can't say much about that yet unfortunately. I also finished a Fabric Collection with Kennard and Kennard and that just released recently! It's currently available for pre-order on their website: Kennard and Kennard
It's titled Charming Coastal Creatures!
It's all about Australian animals located on the coast. It was fun to work on and I learned a few more things doing this collection, when it comes to surface patterning. Smart objects in Photoshop is your friend. I also probably need to mute my colours more. I will need to try that on the next collection.
One of my favourite patterns where these rockhoppers too. Don't see a lot of patterns with these little guys and I enjoyed adding in the crabs and sea stars.

I would love to know how other surface pattern designers work. I can work full digital but I really do enjoy the hand drawn process so I would prefer to stick with that a while yet instead of going full digital. Though it will have to be fully digital when I start doing vector patterns.
