Spring Collection

Although I have designed many collections over the years, they sometimes present a challenge. My first piece below has been well received so far so I decided to create a collection around it. I really like the color balance, flow and energy in the image ; I am now working on the second design and am trying to achieve the same qualities. At first the next piece did not flow as well. How did I solve the problem? As I am working in Illustrator I opened both files and looked at the designs side by side. This allowed me to compare size and shape relationships, movement, and subject matter. I am deleting some of the icons and replacing them with more pleasing shapes as well as adjusting sizes. My hope is that the design will look fresh and lead me to the idea for the next piece.

  1. I love your style of illustrating. Hmmm. Any chance you could do a design with a cactus theme? Use primarily green and brown too. I know… I know… I’m picky! 🙂
