Black Swan

Illustration, PatternDenise HolmesComment

blackswan1 Even though I have deadlines looming, contests to be nervous about and a rambunctious child to watch... I can very easily block everything out and sit down at my desk and create work just for fun. Too bad it doesn't work that way for my actual paying projects. Those take much more time and patience. Over the weekend someone mentioned on the MATS facebook group Tigerprint's recent contest called for a black and white pattern. While I normally love color, I thought this would be fun challenge.

Above is the pretty swan and floral pattern that I created for the contest. It might not be a winner, but it's always nice to get out of my comfort zone and come up with something fun!
