Around the House

Around the House - student project

When I first started this project, I was a little unsure of what to draw. So I decided to draw what was right in front of me!


Drawing with pen and paper has always been intimidating to me because of its permanency in comparison to drawing digitally. But I was up for the challenge! In my original sketches I included type, but I wasn't sure if I wanted to use it in my patterns. I ended up making two, one with the text and one without.

Playing with color was a lot of fun, but I think these three are my favorite!

And here is the pattern I made with the text:

Although the final results don't have any added texture, I did play around with it in photoshop. I couldn't find a brush I felt complimented my drawings. So I decided to go without for these patterns. Maybe it's something I'll come back to later on. 

My take aways from this class are how to make a pattern, a better understanding in photoshop and more confidence in drawing! Thanks again Dylan for such a fun and challenging class, I really enjoyed creating for this project.
