I recently participated in the ALSC Valentine Pattern Design Art Challenge! This was my entry but unfortunately it was not one of the Top 6 designs selected by the Art Directors at Robert Kaufman.
I hand illustrated the flower elements, scanned them in and put them together in Illustrator. I really love how the color palette came together! Maybe it was not traditional enough colors for Valentine's Day? A couple of fellow artists mentioned that the design would make lovely Wedding gift wrap paper. Hmmm, that's a thought.
I really love participating in these challenges! It motivates me to create new work that I maybe would not otherwise do. If you want to see the Congrats to all of the winners.
