Fun New Bedding Designs

Over the last couple of weeks I have been working really hard on some new designs and artwork for my portfolio. An area which I have wanted to develop and do surface pattern designs for is the children's market. I have been spending alot of time drawing and sketching different motifs and objects in preparation for creating a whole collection of pattern designs that will be fun and versatile and geared towards casual fashion and a range of designs suitable for children's bedding with some matching soft furnishing and cute stuffed toys. 

As part of my design process I always develop all my individual drawings and sketches into layout that provides a sense of movement and flow, this was my final set of boats illustrations which I laid out so that it could be used as a fun poster or go on a beach towel.

I then worked on the repeat pattern design and added some modern colours. And you can now see the final result.  My first completed design for a boys bedding collection which I have called Regatta. I hope you like it! I think it would look fabulous in a boys room with my hand drawn nautical inspired design. Let me know what you think :)
