In November 2011 I began the first of 3 modules of an e-course entitled “The Art and Business of Surface Pattern Design”. In the past year I have successfully begun to license some of my artwork and I was keen to learn how I could continue to do this in the world of Surface Pattern.
The course is developed by Beth Nicholls from Do What You Love and Surface Pattern Designer Rachael Taylor. I have learned so much already and am really excited about the possibilities this course has opened up for me. My fellow students are a talented bunch from 18 countries on 5 continents! They inspire me daily and I feel very grateful to have the opportunity to connect with them.
One of the patterns I created during Module 1 of the course has been garnering a fair amount of exposure on some really prominent pattern blogs:
- Print Paper Cloth from Byron Bay, NSW, Australia
- Print & Pattern (UK)
I thought I would share some of my process in creating my “Hosta Trumpets” pattern.
Next step – creating a collection of prints to accompany my dear little “Hosta Trumpets”. Stay tuned!
