After a busy summer following graduation from KCAI (woohoo!) things are somewhat starting to slow down. After meeting with a surface designer this past summer and being advised to develop a collection I have decided to start. The theme is Geology- specifically minerals and fossils. The collection will consist of five different patterns, two of which will be more illustrative and detailed patterns (considered the main patterns in the collection) with three simpler patterns to go along with it. Not only will the theme of minerals and fossils tie the patterns together, but I have also decided on a definite color palette as seen above.
Here is a progress shot of where I am at. Though this particular pattern is still in the works, my next pattern will be similarly executed in design, though the subject will be fossils.
