illustration mockups

I have mixed feelings about putting my pattern designs into mockups. On the one hard, photoshop magic is pretty awesome! And it is a good way to get an idea of how the scale and colors of a pattern might look in real life. On the other hand, they always seem very slick and fake for my taste. So I started these as a way to create a mockup illustrations… and now they are just super fun! The cat drawing is based on my kitty Linus who loves sleeping in the sun.

polypody pattern

I’ve become obsessed lately with pattern design, especially botanicals. This illustration is based on the rock ferns that grow in the woods near my house in central Massachusetts. It’s the New England version of all the beautiful tropical designs around right now. I would love to see this as wallpaper!
