biscuits (or cookies)

Hi everyone! Thought I'd share a pattern I created recently. I loved this class, I found it very inspiring, and I hope you did too!

I decided to create a pattern including some of my favourite biscuits, whether found in packets, or homemade. Though many biscuits I could sketch from memory, I also did a bit of research to find some colourful (and iconic) British and Aussie biscuits, gathering ideas for colour schemes as I went.

Then I got to sketching as many different and iconic biscuits as I could think of...

Then I loaded the picture up into Illustrator and started sketching over them, adding colour and shading where I could.

Originally it looked like this...

But the design turned out too gridlike, and blocky, and I felt the colours were fighting against each other a bit, so I reworked the pattern block:

And so (after playing with the scale and the direction of the pattern) the pattern ended up looking like this...
