14 Apr '17 — A play of shapes
I started documenting design details, from old books to architecture. The pattern I developed was from a few of my favorite shapes. I didn't spend much time on color, but I'll have to in order to get a combination I really like.
Decorative tiles seem to work the best when there are many of them, scaled so that the details appear less distinct.
As someone who doesn't have a creative background, it's fascinating to experience the process of making a pattern like this. I don't consider myself anywhere close to real artists/designers, but just to feel what it's like, to absorb influences from different places, digest over a period of time before being able to throw something out--it's magic.
