#ippweeklycreate Which sketch did I chose?

I've chosen this sketch to develop into something by Friday as part of the #ippweeklycreate .

My aim is to show some of the working progress between now and then too. I intend to turn this into a repeat pattern probably sketching other elements and introducing colour in Photoshop. I have yet to learn Adobe Illustrator and think I need to get a book on it! I will be digging out  Rachael Taylor's surface pattern course for the notes. I do find illustrator quite illogical but I suppose that's like many technical things that are totally new to someone - er. Well some of you will be with me! If you have any good recommendations on books or courses that you found invaluable to learn Illustrator with please let me know in the comments!

So who is definitely joining me this week? #ippweeklycreate is making a new piece of work in any media you like or form you like from a sketch you’ve done before – whether from the daily drawing project or  a different drawing. Chose a drawing at the beginning of the week and post your result on Friday that week. You can read details of optional postings and some ideas on the 'current project' page of my blog


leave a comment if you can :)

  2. Thank you Joy. I hope you'll continue with your sketching. I will definitely be doing another sketching only project at some point. In the meantime you can continue to post in the Flickr group as I won't be closing it and I'll still be looking there.
