Stay tooned to drawing and painting tips. Starting from a simple sketch into the final collectible. We are open to suggestions - please let us know your thoughts and if you want to know about a particular process.
Sketch: The initial sketch comes from my travels or whenever I have a chance to doodle on paper. This particular sketch was done while I was traveling in New Zealand, South Island.
Digital Design: After I returned from travel, I created the sketch in Adobe flash. A digital version of the drawing where I add color and composition.
FABRIC : The next step is to create the pattern repeat to design a fabric from the image. This design we decided to use a Mirror repeat and it turns out it created turtles within the design. Can you see the turtles?
Collectible: The final collectible is created by Joani into a #TeaTowel.
