Be yourself and the inspiration will come

I was practicing my hand lettering with the idea that I might hand letter the text in Dog Gone, the picture book I’m almost done illustrating. I’m not 100% sure my ability is up to the task, so I’ll keep practicing while I finish up the illustrations and we’ll see what comes of that. I’m optimistic!

Anyway, I needed a little break from the lettering, so I was doodling and I came up with this idea of a hummingbird doing loops. Using my new Illustrator knowledge, I worked up some repeating patterns for textiles along with a fun message!

These are available on my Society 6 store on a variety of merchandise such as mugs, pillows, shower curtains, iPhone covers, the list goes on! I’m going to look into having some fabric made at Spoonflower I think it would make a really cute sheet set and tea towels, too!

I really love how graphic it is and how the last one is so reminiscent of herringbone!
