Matryoshka & Molluscs

Matryoshka & Molluscs - student project

I chose to illustrate a few random objects from my home which weren't directly related to one another but somehow all tied in together with Julia's pattern technique (and, yes, that is an octopus-themed teapot - an Octopot, if you will).

I decided to use the half-drop technique as I wanted a bit more movement in the design. Unfortunately my edges didn't line up quite as nicely as Julia's so the xerox technique didn't work wonders for my tile.  I scanned it in instead and touched it up in Photoshop to repeat it digitally.

Behold the completed tile.

And the repeat.
