Please excuse the very roughness of this sketch. I have some a couple of cartoon cats I’m working on. Why? I honestly don’t know. I guess it’s just a thing I feel like doing. I also love cats.
I was going to call this one “Lulu” but I found out there’s already a toy cat named Lulu. I’ll probably end up naming her something similar. When she has color, her fur is going to be an orchid purple and the stripes in her ears will be a lime green color.
Hello, all! I have a new pattern today. This one is called Caged Floral. This is the first repeating pattern I’ve done that uses photographic elements. The flowers are from various photographs I’ve taken over the years.
I actually started out with more flowers than this, but I felt it was important to keep the black space intact. I like the contrast in there.
Here we have it in action.

Hey there, netizens! I have another pattern today. This one is called Spiked Floral. It’s a mix of flowers and spikes and crescent moons on a silver background.
Welcome to the return of the color scheme posts. I haven’t done one in forever! Well, this one is new and improved with a more Pinterest-like format. I have a color scheme board on there that I love. If you want to follow it, my page can be found here: http://www.pinterest.com/RLDraws/
For this color scheme, I did a bit of a dissection of Starry Night by Van Gogh.
Hey there! I hope everyone has had a delightful weekend. Mine was pretty good, exhausting but good.
I’m currently working on a pattern called Caged Floral. It’s the first one I will have made using photographs or pieces of photographs, at least. I stumbled on a couple of photos that I felt compelled to mess around with. I got some practice fixing overexposure in photoshop. They look pretty cool, I think, so I figured I’d pop them up onto the blog.
I took this first picture at the art museum in Indianapolis. The original was washed out and too bright, so I put it through the photoshop wringer. :)
Cranked up the saturation. Dialed down the exposure and messed with other various knobs and switches.
I like this second one because it has a kind vintage postcard feel to it. I went a little crazy with the saturation, but that was intentional.
