Home Town Pattern Design
Evolution of Home Town Pattern Design
This pattern started as a series of house illustrations that celebrate the houses from my past. Some I’ve lived in, others I have simply admired enough to illustrate them.
Combining the Illustrations
I have combined the illustrations before as posts on Instagram, but each one was isolated. I wanted the new Home Town pattern to overlap as if seen from above. There are two rows of houses, that repeat. The tricky part was trying to get a flow along the ‘road’ so that they appeared to be realistic. The two rows are staggered to make the pattern repeat less obvious.
Testing The Pattern Repeat
These full-screen versions use actual pattern repeats, set to repeat and scaled using my CSS style sheet. This is the ideal way to test if a pattern repeat works.
Buying My Designs
Products featuring my pattern designs are available to buy from my shops hosted by Spoonflower and Contrado. As well as fabrics by the metre, they can produce my designs in a range of home decor items including; tablecloths, bedding, cushions, wallpaper, cushions and wrapping paper / gift wrap.
