Since my last post I have been busy with alot of new design work and projects. One of these was to design fabric inspired by a Japanese Garden for a Kimono for Spoonflower's new website Sprout Patterns. I designed a few different patterns in the process. This was my first design with these Cranes in flight.
I then went on to illustrate and draw some more Japanese theme motifs such as shrines, cherry blossoms and origami inspired patterns. I added these to a new design and also played around with several different colour variations before I settled with the final design - Geisha Garden.
And this is an example of what my Geisha Garden Textile Design would look like when used for a Kimono.
