These were my entries for the recent Tigerprint Spots and Stripes design competition. The brief was to come up with a fresh take on surface patterns featuring spots and stripes and to follow key colour trends for spring/summer 2014.
The main pattern was taken from the little angel I drew for Shoot it, Sketch it a few weeks ago. I scanned the original ink drawing and edited it as a vector illustration. I ended up with quite a few combinations I really liked but had to narrow it down to just five. I picked a couple of the brighter patterns, a couple in some rather yummy grey-blue tones and one that looks a bit like knitted brown paper.
No, they didn’t win, but that’s not why I enter competitions. I do it for the challenge, for the experience and because it’s fun to have a go. Anything more than that is a bonus : )

I can see some of these as delicate cardigans made from microfine merino wool. Good work!
Just looking at these images makes me feel warmer. Great work!
beautiful warm and cozy work 🙂
Well Anna I just looked at the link and have decided I really like yours the best. Sometimes one sees patterns that are nice but no way would they work out in transfering say to fashion for one thing .
Editing it as a vector illustration [ all a mystery to me sounds very mathematical eek ! ] I think is lovely ! I see such patterns on skirts and tunics and scarves in shops like White Stuff, Fat Face, Mistral, Sea Salt here in UK 😀
I like the idea of putting them on fabric! When I designed them, I imagined cozy wrapping paper, but now I see a new trend in printed scarves – or unusual tee shirts : )
🙂 Could just be !
