My goal right now for my portfolio is to create a Spring/Summer 2012 textile collection, due by May 1 (holding myself accountable!) My inspiration is a mixture of Polish pottery as well as Pysany eggs.
I love how bright and geometric everything is! I think they're all very charming and I can't wait to explore these designs and their history!
I've all ready started practicing some of the motifs and drawing some designs.
I probably don't have to watermark... but I figure that maybe I should start getting into the habit. Don't know. Maybe!
My plan of attack is as follows:
- Look at more pots and more eggs. Haha- yes.
- Draw some more thumbnails
- Finalize said thumbnails
- Make 10x10in paintings of each pattern (watercolor, gauche, marker? Hmph...)
- Get my printing on
I think I just need to approach this a little more professionally than I have been lately, but I'm confident I can get it together. For a spring/summer collection I'll be looking into linen and light polyesters and ahhhh- I can't wait to get started! Considering how I'm practicing croquis drawings right now, I might be able to do some rendering for how I would like each print used-- and who knows, maybe I can do something with the prints? Don't know. We'll see.
When it comes down to it, I'm just happy to get started.
