surface pattern design, week two

Last week I shared that I was taking a Pattern Design Class from the Art and Business of Surface Design with Rachel Taylor and Beth Kempton and that for the next five weeks, I’d be posting about my experience with Module 1 Designing Your Way.

Well this week has been about mark making and adding color in Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator. It has been so much fun. Here is a piece that I’m working on today. Do you like it with the strip or without?

Below are some other students in the class that are blogging about their experiences. Check out their great work!

Have a GREAT week!

My dad bought a camper and he is fixing it up to take on cross country adventures. He asked that I design some curtains that are striped with dots for the camper. He also asked that I create it with yellow. Here are some of my designs. Which one do you like?
