Gosh it’s been a while since I wrote my last blog post! I’m sure it’s not too late to say that I hope you had a good Christmas and New Year.
January was such a busy month for me, work-wise. I had quite a few projects to concentrate on. All the better to keep me out of mischief!!
I’d like to share with you a sock sample that popped through my letterbox recently. It’s a design I created for the super funky brand, Sock It To Me.
I must say, the colours and fabric quality are fabulous! Sometimes when making up a design, the icons can look a tad ‘squiffy’, however, I’m amazed how good the hedgehog and cacti look on the fabric, when compared to my artwork on-screen. A superb job!
Designs for apparel
Here is my final sock design – Lookin’ Sharp
I’ve also been working on a few other fashion brands, creating patterns for childrenswear. It has been great fun and a nice change from producing illustrations. That’s one of the many things I love about what I do; I get to work on a great variety of projects!
Here’s a pattern I produced, based on the ocean, for Freddie Fox and Co. It’s called “Underwater Odyssey”.
For this pattern, I made the icons bright, so that they ‘pop out’ against the teal background. It was a fun design to work on!
I’ll keep you posted about the other fashion brands, once the designs have been printed and are in production 🙂
