Stay tooned for drawing and painting tips. I start with a simple sketch, develop that image into a more refined image in the computer and then work with my sister Joani to develop the idea into a final collectible.
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 my trip, 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. We decided to use a Mirror repeat here 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.
