my name is Caio Mascarello and I'm a illustrator and graphic designer from Porto Alegre, Brazil.
Recently I got hired to give some classes on Surface Designing and in order to prepare my classes, I decided to take some SkillShare courses to try different exercises I could apply to my students.
My process for this class goes as below:
1st. I work on some designs and decided to keep working on 3 that i liked the most.
2nd. I printed the 3 of them and gave each one some work time on arranging the tiles, but ended up liking the most the one with the circles.
3rd. I scanned and work on it digitally on illustrator, creating the motif.
I also tried coloring some of the elements, but to be honest it only looked good as 1 tile, as a pattern it didn't work well.
4th. I created the pattern digitally and gave it some color. I also applied a little texture.
5th. This is the final pattern on a moleskine mock up.
Look forward for your comments and notes :P
