I know for ages my blog has been all about crafts, but recently I've been really enjoying developing my digital illustration style so I thought I'd share this illustration I did tonight. She goes along with a story idea that I've been thinking about. I've been trying to update my website more regularly as I create new illustrations so you can always have a look there if you'd like to see what's new!
I think I've mentioned it before, but for those who don't know yet, there's a place online where you can print your own custom fabric called Spoonflower. Since I've been doing more digital illustration lately, it seemed like a good time to revisit the site.
I subscribe to their email updates, and every week there's a contest for fabric design. This week the topic is root vegetables, so I came up with the design above. Figuring out how to do repeats such as the half-drop used for this one was the tricky part (thank you Bradley!). But now that I have a rough idea how to do it I hope to keep improving my designs.
You can find me on Spoonflower here. Once you receive a test swatch of your fabric you can make your designs available for sale on Spoonflower. I've ordered a sample of my Green Garden design, so I'll post that when it arrives. But in the meantime, it's just really fun!
In a nutshell, I'm a freelance illustrator and inveterate crafter. Click on the picture above to see my full profile. You can email me at needlebook [at] clairelouisemilne.com. Thank you for your comments and for linking to me! -:- Claire -:-
