    Having some afternoon fun & therapy with filling in my new Copic Hex Chart by @sandyallnock. So far I can conclude that I have a few reds and a few blue-violets that are a bit too visually alike.

    Do you like behind-the-scenes glimpses into other artists creative processes too? I love them! So just posted a new blog article about how I create my ”painted” look when coloring my pattern motifs in Adobe Illustrator + how I made the Rose Garden pattern

    Think I found the right color palette of #copic #markers eventually. Now I’m going to try to color the same pattern from yesterdays post using markers. You know the tracing in Illustrator is going to be a killer. Not to mention the file size 😳:rol

    On Thursday I’ll be sending the second step in how to make a big corporate 3-year plan for your small creative business to my newsletter subscribers. This time I’ll show you how to define your functions and set measurable objectives.  I’m starting off with a bang with once a week in March, then to once a month so that you won’t be fed up with me 🤓. This week I’m also sharing a video with a little tour of my home studio -how I’ve organized it, my equipment and favorite tools - t

    On the subway, on my way to have brunch with a friend I haven’t seen for a while. It dawned on me that I need to get out of the four walls of my studio a lot more! And on Thursday I will again - for the first work-along meetup with our group of Swedish pattern designers. Yay! See you guys soon!  Today I’m bringing a pattern of mine with me, the Adrian Paisley pattern printed on velvet and made into my first self made hand bag. 👜😎 Happy Saturday y’all! 😘 #
