"Patterns are an everyday thing in my world, whether I am creating them myself or seeking them out elsewhere."
A great philosopher once said "to understand is to perceive patterns," so that is what I try to do.
This is a freestyle digital drawing that I would create in my free time – it took a couple weeks to complete. I never like to be mentally idle, so in between projects, life, and whatever else, I would fill the gaps with coming back to this design and adding more until I felt like it was complete. Lots of colors, shapes, overlaps, connections...it’s chaotic!
I wanted to create a pattern that ‘dripped.’ Hip-Hop inspired mixed with my love of flat color, simple shapes, and striking color combinations. Dripping with art and design.
Electric Kool-Aid Pattern Test
Bright, loud, colorful, trippy, and slightly odd. Inspired by the abstract lifestyles of the Merry Pranksters. I combined a few different color schemes here, all of which would never be ‘classically’ used together. And with a good dose of black for contrast...everything seems to work together perfectly.
Made for colorful people to blend into their colorful surroundings! I really wanted a pattern with a strong juxtaposition of sharp, 3D shapes over a more subtle, 2D tie-dye background. Power-clashing at it’s finest!
This started as a geometric feather pattern for a different project that ended up not being used. I really liked the design so I definitely still wanted to utilize it somehow. Through some minor rearranging and color alterations, the feather shape dissolved and arrows appeared – colors going up and black & white going down.
