Always Learning



Underwater Hippos

This class is proving to be a bit of a challenge for me, not only with the coming up with a fun and unique design, but to find the time to put it all together. But, I am determined to learn and produce a great surface pattern!

My idea was to design a kind of beautiful yet silly pattern with hippopotamuses floating weighlessly underwater. I had come across a few photos of hippos completely submerged underwater not long ago that left me feeling playful and carefree, so I thought why not! Maybe I could capture that feeling in a pattern.

Here is the moodboard that I have created as of now. I am hoping to get some quick doodles down today inbetween doing chores and what not.


More to come soon.
