The Joy Of Patterns

I love making patterns.

Whenever I'm at a blank on what to do, or stuck or frustrated, I make a pattern. You are able to fully enjoy the possibilities of colour, shape, texture and rhythm in a pattern, they always loosen my head from getting hung up on the annoyances of illustration. Patterns are that happy mid-point between the purposefulness of illustration and the abstraction of fine art. I love em.
