First I wanted to show the two paintings that inspired Gypsy wind, my most recent fabric collection. These were commissioned pieces for an educational publishing company to be printed on brochures, CD’s and other collateral. They had asked for purely abstract artwork with a Paul Klee feel. I was specially thrilled to do these since Paul Klee is one of my favorite artists.
I was equally thrilled when P&B textiles asked me to try a fabric collection with a similar idea and feel. Here is the original main print I designed for them. The artwork was painted with gouache and pastel. I then handed painted and inked all the patterns and textures and scanned them into photoshop as layers. Putting this one into repeat and keeping the colors down to 18 couldn’t have been easy but P & B textiles did a great job with it.
Below are some examples of the printed product made into some fun pillows and a quilt, displayed at Quilt Market.
