Making patterns

The tutorial “Making patterns” – the development of pattern repeats with pen and paper – invites you to make mistakes, get dirty and act casually, far away from Photoshop, grid points, alignment tools or conserved color pallets.

The step-by-step guide encourages the reader to discover the characteristics of pencils, fineliners, pens or brushes in interaction with the chosen background such as paper, card or pasteboard. This graphic journey of discovery lures the curious back to the desk and rewards with a specially handmade seamless pattern repeat. So go for it!
