We were asked to develop a pattern with this theme appropriate for the baby apparel market. It's a totally new market for me, but I love to make patterns and I love to draw for kids. So it was a fun week for me!
I first did some research on the theme and gathered a lot of cowboy and their attributes and environments pictures. I had fun drawing them. It's such a good way to come into the mood of the assignment:
Ofcourse I also drew some cowboy faces with cowboy hats:
And lots of horses, here are a few:
I decided not to take cowgirls or cowboys for the assignment, but cowbears instead.
The whole week I had the Susanna song in my head, only the first sentence:
when I came from Alabama,
with a banjo on my knee...
That's what inspired me to make this Banjo Bear:
We were also asked to make lots of icons and variations in your presentation. I think this was the most challenging part for me. Also to make some patterns, called coordinates that fit with the main pattern. So it can be used in combination with each other to make clothes for kids.
Beneath you see the final result. If you wanna see it in a bigger size, click here
Next week we gonna look at the scrapbooking market. Also new to me.
I wonder what that will bring :-) Will be continued...
