So one evening this week I set aside a couple of pages in my sketchbook to draw Christmas trees in an many different styles as I could. One trend Ive been seeing in the market is very tall skinny trees. This is one of my versions of that trend. I also know that my style is a bit all over the place - which isnt always a bad thing in surface design. I had lots of time to think while I was sick and not up to being creative about what things I was drawn to. I remembered visiting the @maryjosclothstore with my grandmother every summer. Especially the summer we made a group quilt and another summer that she helped me pick out a shirt pattern and I picked out several different blue and white printed fabrics and buttons for each print. She helped me sew a whole set of summer shirts! The summer of the quilt I overwhelmed my Mamaw who was 80 at the time by picking out 13 different coordinating prints. She thought a quilt should have no more than four! 😂 I have lots and lots of memories fingering all the bolts and I think subconsciously I knew I wanted to figure out how to design the fabric more than I wanted to sew with it. I also remember a local quilt shop opening in that same mall and I was very drawn to the projects with a primitive style - especially the wool felt ones. So I started a whole Pinterest board for primitive and wool felts and I bought my first @suespargo pattern! All of this to say that this little tree is my first design nod in the direction of exploring a prime style. I resiated the urge to make it symmetrical and left it a bit wonky. Its still a geometric pattern but that character makes it read a bit softer. All the patterns currently in this collection are geometric but Ive plans for a more organic floral to help round it out.

When you are entering the surface design market there is always a debate about whether to show your designs on mockups or to just show everything flat. Do you go through the time of creating technical repeats ahead of time or do you just do repeat mockups and create the repeat at the time of sale or licensing? And often repeats are not even needed! ⠀ ⠀ There are so many well respected voices on both sides of each of these issues that Ive decided unless you are working directly with an agent or client its really up to the discretion of the artist.⠀ ⠀ Because I want to keep my feed interesting and because it also helps me as I design to imagine my work on a product Im beginning to use mockups for my work. Its a whole other new thing to learn! There are a lot of great mockups on the market ready to use but I really like the idea of making my own. This is one of my first attempts.⠀ ⠀ I still have a lot to work out - better use of drop shadows learning how to use gradients not to mention learning how to change the angles and stretch patterns so that they look like they are on three dimensional products. Its a lot to learn and master. For now Im just focusing on getting the idea across.⠀ ⠀ If youve read my about page on my website youll know that Im an art school dropout! And in all of the years I was there I only had one basic design class and two drawing classes - I studied pottery and fiber arts instead. So all of my graphics illustration and design work I have had to work out on my own following the right people asking numerous probably annoying questions taking as many online courses as I can to keep improving. Like this #createchristmas one.⠀ ⠀ I have friends who have been cheering me on and who have been very encouraging - @bethpinckney @carlastout @mrsdrcc @cosbee @shoebeedo.nc @bonniebuckingham @luckintheshadows @powerfullgood and some others who likely dont want to be tagged you know who you are!. And my biggest encourager of all and the man who doesnt mind the mess while I make @david.benton.3150!⠀ ⠀ A big thanks to you all - and to all of you fellow surface designers who have welcomed me into your community - thank you - I feel tru #createchristmas 1 hour ago

Here is a close up of my gingerbread pine cones.
