Make Art That Sells - Week 1 - Bolt Fabric

  Make Art That Sells finally started! Week 1 was about the bolt fabric industry and it is definitely an industry I would love to illustrate and design for. Our assignment was to design a vintage kitchen themed fabric using mushrooms and pyrex. I was able to use my pattern making skills (thanks to nicole's classes) and created this swatch:

I was pretty excited with how this one turned out! That little hobo toadstool girl kind of cracks me up!

So far the class has been very inspiring. Lot's of informative interviews and great bits of information that I didn't know about. Everyone's work is great to see and helps push me to work hard on my assignments. We are currently in Home Decor week and I am sketching out my ideas for a plate design. I'll be back next week to share my pieces.
