Pattern Making

My studio practice has been leading my down the path of patterning and texture. I spend quite a bit of time researching Egyptian art and I'm interested in the ornamental ways artist from that era decorated sculptures and objects created for fashion. Everything in my created world has to have my own spin. I like to manipulate everything to my on liking when I pull in foreign elements unless it's for a really specific reason. I've been using Corel Painter and Illustrator CS -when I need precision- to make my own patterning. Illustrator is my least favorite program to work with because even simple moves require some kind of keystroke, but when you need precision it's a great program. I watched this youtube video by illustrator Tella Cunninham and got to work on creating a few patterns of my own.
