A couple of posts back I mentioned a new creative career that I've been thinking about. So I thought I'd post about this today, especially since I just started back into some exciting on-line coursework that I'll explain in a later post.
Here's what I want to be when I grow up: A Surface Pattern Designer.
"What the heck is that?" you might say.
Well, the nickel version is that it's someone who can take a drawing or a painting or any kind of design imagery and have it published or placed on fabric, stationary, notebooks, tea-towels, upholstery fabric, wallpaper, wrapping paper, you name it.
I've started out by taking some of my drawings and getting them printed on fabric. This is a most pleasing process and result that is made possible by the brilliant people at Spoonflower.
I've done some limited work so far, but can you imagine the possibilities?
You can visit my design shop here and see some of the things I've worked on over the last year.
Come back later this week and I'll talk about the exciting on-line coursework I've started on this topic and where it's taking me! Yippee!
