Dinosaurs and Rockets!

Hello everyone! Its been a while and for good reason. Its been noticeably quiet on my blog because... I got a job! I'm not sure how much I'm allowed to talk about it, but in a nutshell, I am currently a clothing designer. Hooray!

I have other exciting art-related things that I am currently involved with too. I will elaborate on that later when the time is right.

I have been working on a few things. My current obsession is repeating patterns! I love it! I recently worked things outside of my comfort zone. Its a long and epic quest to become more versatile while evolving my artwork into a style that screams: "Hey! I made this!"

This went through about eight different versions before I came up with this. This was mostly because I couldn't decide where to place the dinosaurs! All too often a dinosaur ended "humping" another dinosaur. And in another version, one poor critter ended up in between two tyrannosaurus rex. I couldn't have that! The least I could do was give the little guy a fighting chance!

The news is abuzz with the launch of the Endeavor at Kennedy Space center. To celebrate I drew some rocket ships and alien space crafts! I was looking at a lot of retro rockets and wanted to make a space pattern with a 1950's vibe with a 1980's twist. Was I successful? After finishing this, I think I should've made additional color choices. Although, I do like how colorful it is :)

I have a lot more patterns to show you, but they aren't quite ready yet! I'm happy to be back in the blogsphere!
