Beginners assignment was to make a tropical summer pattern, I came up with this:
I like to see my patterns mocked up on clothes, so I made an illustration of a tropical girl.
I had to think of the Summer carnaval we celebrate here every year in Rotterdam, all kind of extravagant hats and wigs :) View all tropical patterns of the beginner brief 1 in the summerschool gallery
The Intermediate assignment was to make a retro geometric pattern for a bathing suit.
I made several designs, it was hard to choose, but I submitted this ´summer diamonds´ design. Because I thought this was the most appropriate for a bathing suit. View all retro geometric patterns of the intermediate brief 1 in the summerschool gallery
The advanced assignment (yes, I signed up for that one too ;-)) was to create a water pattern:
I chose for a combination of dancing Octopuses and waves It doesn't show on the picture but I even succeeded to make it a seamless repeated pattern, which was quite a challenge with this design. View all water patterns of the advanced brief 1 in the summerschool gallery
The briefs and the work of the other participants are very inspiring. Next Monday we will get three new assignments. I Hope to find time to accomplish these too. Will be continued...
