I love to experiment with patterns and if you know me at all then you know how much I like pixelated icons and forms. I’ve been doing a lot of repeat patterns lately and here’s a sampling of the new ideas. The top row: Right, expansion of an arabian pattern. Top Middle, I call this one bodies. Top Left, This one is inspired by Donkey Kong Jr. The second row: Bottom Right, this one is a hexagonal repeat that I call enemies. Bottom Middle, Fire Flower repeat, inspired by Mario Bros. Bottom Right, spinning scorpions in two color ways.
A short while ago I started doing these new drawings. They use a series of custom printed patterns that I created, and then I draw in the dots by hand. It’s labor intensive and can kind of tweak your vision, but I’m really liking how they are turing out. Below are some pics of the first three, there are more in the works already, but you can get these on my etsy store right now.
