hand drawn birds and things

I’ve entered another contest on Spoonflower kids.  Their contest rules were that the design had to be hand drawn.  I had an idea for bird cages and birds and clouds – but after I did it, I thought I’d try something more whimsical.  Birds and cats with balloons.  I have to say, drawing cats took some research.  I am not a cat person, I’m a dog person.  But I think they turned out to be very cute.  I especially like the little butthole I put on one of the cats 😉

I think its interesting how different the two different design look and feel, considering they contain many of the same elements.

Illustrator is magic

I’ve been more or less teaching myself how to use Illustrator in a more “fabricy repeating pattern” kind of way”.  I’ve stumbled across some short cuts – and have been playing with geometrics.  I think some of them look really cool, and some others have the potential to be cooler younger brothers, but they aren’t quite there yet.
