Sunday sketch #17

You know how much I like repetitive patterns using a single shape. I like to see the diversity that can arise from rearranging the size and direction of one element. This week, the parallelogram.


Lots of interesting secondary shapes arise in such overlapping designs. Triangles, hexagons, more parallelograms.

I’ll keep playing with this idea. I think the top left corner is a little too busy. And I think translating this design into fabric would be a logistical nightmare.

Sunday sketch #15

Back to the Rhodia dot pad this week for some old-school sketching. Another simple shape – this time an obtuse scalene triangle – repeated in a random pattern.
