Flower Pattern THREE

So I just finished another pattern.
This one is to add to that portfolio I'm working on.
I figured that I should get some hand drawn looking things in here, too.
(I've also noticed that I should start making more things with colored backgrounds.)
I'll add those other patterns I made in Illustrator so you can see them)

So I recently re-discovered
My penpal Jessica told me about it about 4 ?? years ago and I was all about it.
Of course, Mcad and life and whatever got in the way and I ended up forgetting about it for a while.
In one random moment, I remembered it's existance and went crazy.

check it out :

So it's really simple, you push a button to get some random person's address, and then you send them some mail. Sometimes trinkets, art, stickers or even a -- *gasp* postcard!
THEN... if you feel like it, you can add YOUR address to the pile and random people can mail you things!! How exciting!
I decided that I was going to make some quick fun collage postcards for these random people and include some love.

So here are the postcards I made.
I'm mailing them tomorrow. :)

Print & Pattern Portfolio

I'm getting ready to start getting my print & Pattern Portfolio ready again.
We just launched the new site and I'm excited to get some new stuff up there!
Here's something I painted today.
It's a little bit of paint and a lot of compositing on the computer.


here's version 1:

and version 2:

version 1 is pretty insane. I can't tell which one I like better.
more later.
