Frida Kahlo Pattern

Thank you for the great class, it really helped a lot!

For this pattern I used graphic elements I made at a Design Garden class I took a while ago but I wanted to turn them into a pattern collection as well. I love Frida Kahlo's art and find her life also very interesting so I got inspired from her objects, friends, pets, plants, etc. and used a few of my original clip art set in this pattern design. I created a bold, bright colour scheme to get a multicoloured, cheerful Mexican feeling.

I was about 16 when I started to paint. People told me that my creations reminded them of Frida's art. First I got annoyed because I didn't know the artist that time and I just wanted to be myself and not the copy of someone else :) But in the same time I got more curious each time, and when I checked her paintings out I instantly fell in love with her art. That was about 15 years ago and I still adore her imagination, so finally decided to create some kind of a tribute to her :)

UPDATE:

I modified the colours a bit and also created a whole collection based on the Frida Kahlo graphics.
