Sunday sketch #34

More stars and stripes this week, still using Excel.


I like the balance between the two shades of each colour – almost as if you’re seeing the (saturated) front and (faded) back of a strip of fabric. I love the amount of negative space around the stars, and the white squares (on point) that emerge as a result. And those Devo hat-like triangular stacks – you almost don’t see the stars for the stripes.

Set the same design on point for a different effect:


Almost like a modern plaid of sorts.
