This week's Spoonflower contest is 'Interspecies Animal Friendships'; a theme which could have so many combinations of animals! I decided to create a design focused on cats and birds, just because I like cats and birds really. :) You can see below some of my work in progress, where I started with pencil drawings in my sketchbook, which became pen line drawings. These were then turned into vector art and I finished the design digitally. I wanted to experiment with flatter colour this time as well as changing the colours of my line drawings.There are lots of cute designs entered in this week's contest; you can see them all here (and vote for your favourites too!)... http://www.spoonflower.com/contests/339
PS. Thank you if you voted for my Year of the Monkey design a couple of weeks ago - it came 43rd out of 252 entries with 141 votes. I received a test swatch of it last week on Spoonflower's new Cotton Spandex Jersey, which means you can now buy my Year of the Monkey design on fabric, gift wrap and wallpaper. I was impressed with the new Cotton Spandex Jersey fabric too. It's a lovely soft and stretchy fabric, I think it would be great for making t-shirts and comfy clothing!
