Well, there hasn't been much posting going on lately at Kitty as a Picture; as I previously mentioned I have been working my way through Module One of The Art and Business of Surface Pattern Design. I hope to post more frequently again soon and I have some really fabulous illustrated books on my desk to review in the next few weeks. Today though, I thought I would share with you a couple of my own designs that I created during Module One of the Ecourse. I design under the name gobennygo:

I already do some fabric design on a freelance basis, but I have never had the luxury of exploring my own style. I am strongly influenced by vintage design, and I have found myself leaning towards florals and strong repeats. I would like to do a lot of experimentation over the coming months to bring some texture into my work, and to really find my individual style. I think the Ecourse is very well put together and I am certain it will be a very important investment for me. If you are interested in following some of my experiments and coursework, please join me at my other blog - gobennygo. You will also find gobennygo on twitter and facebook.
