#patternjanuary2019 complete✔️I was feeling bad and beating myself up a bit over it until I put together this collection for #the100dayproject day 15. I know it took me 2.5 extra months to complete, BUT in that time I’ve also worked on two other month long daily projects and learned a whole brand new medium that I’m super psyched about (oil painting). So, it took me time, but it wasn’t like I was being lazy or procrastinating. Also, when I was collecting the images for each day’s prompt I found so many that had multiple variations and even completely different ...
Day 12 #robayre100days and Day 30 #patternjanuary - Symbol. I was keeping an eye out for what symbol I should use, and we watched an episode of Art 21 with Chris Ware, and he said he uses symbols a lot, and they showed a speech bubble. I use speech bubbles in my grass quote art paintings, and decided to paint them in chalkboard paint so people could fill them in themselves later. I made an example with just the word NOPE.
Oops, I screwed up the grid, (keeping all my Art-o-mat paintings in the same column) and so I had to delete this and repost. . Day 11 #robayre100days and Day 29 #patternjanuary - Vowel. I went with Os, so basically a polka dot. This is a real rough draft, as I’m still without a computer. slide two was an alternative A E I O U
Day 10 #robayre100days and Day 28 #patternjanuary - Curve. I carved a stamp to get this curvy repeating pattern, that turned out (unintentionally) being an S with a teeny tiny top curve, so I carved a second stamp with the inside arch and I like it a lot more. My original thought was to print it on fabric, but the stamp is so small and I’m not exactly sure about inking up a rubber stamp for printing on fabric, so I just stuck with a stamp pad for now. I should have printed over grid paper or drawn really light ...
#patternjanuary day 12 - Fruit or Veggie? I kept thinking strawberry for this pattern, but I made a strawberry pattern 3 years ago. Finally it occurred to me I should do an orange/cutie pattern in the same style. Heavy handed, loose line drawing, then colored in with watercolor crayons and then painted over. I LOVE citrus fruits, and I love this pattern. #oranges
Four days into February this is my last post for the #patternjanuary challenge, for the "Window" prompt of Day 31. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Thank you @Aisforanika for hosting this challenge. Your daily prompts challenged me - as I had hoped - to think outside the box, outside my own little box, and to create lots of new blocks and new patterns... ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Now that the challenge is over - what would you like to see me post next? Please tell me in the comments below. Any particular motives or patterns you would like me to make? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ✧ ✧ ✧ ✧ ✧ ...
#patternjanuary day 10 - Beach. My idea was to recreate little rock piles, inspired by our trips to Kemil Beach at the Indiana Dunes State Park (one of my favorite places). Scroll through to the last image to see a picture I took of my brother making miniature stacks. I started to get lazy, thinking about doing the stones, so I thought a quick alternative idea would be to just do my watercolored stripes in a beach color palette. Of course, once I started actually painting, and finished the stripes, I just starting in on the stone piles right ...
Pattern January Day 24 (catching up!): Sun - I wanted to create a lighthearted dot in juicy colors that make me look forward to warm weather. Anyone else feeling over this gray day in Minneapolis? . . . #letsmakepatterns#patternjanuary
Day 31: Window #patternjanuary by @aisforanika. Last pattern in the challenge - thank you so much @aisforanika - it has been so funny to do this and I am not at all finished with pattern making❤️❤️ #patterns
The koru (Maori for "loop") symbol is based on the shape of an unfolding silver fern frond and is said to represent new beginnings, growth and peace. What is your favorite symbol? (Day 30 of #patternjanuary: prompt "Symbol") ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ✧ ✧ ✧ ✧ ✧ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #printmaking
Day 28: Curve #patternjanuary by @aisforanika Still a little behind - but now I have made the last ones, I will post them over the weekend! Here I made a pattern out of some boring business graphs. #patterns
Pattern January day 30: symbol . May I present to you the eggplant, an international symbol of the pee pee. . No drawing for this one, just a computer sketch while looking at pictures of real eggplants. . #patternjanuary#patternjanuary2019
#patternjanuary day 8 - Kitchen. This pattern is pretty inspired by my SIL, a collector of Aprons and Pyrex. Each of the items were analog watercolored, or penciled, and then assembled digitally. The rolling pin is based off the actual rolling pin I have (handed down from my mother, and I think actually from my grandma’s collection of rolling pins) and the Pyrex is based on one of my own. The colors are all Dacia. #robayrepatterns
Thank you @aisforanika for leading us all on such an amazing journey with #patternjanuary2019. Participating has pushed me more creatively than I could have imagined. Was only going to post my 5 favorites but I am not above admitting that I slayed these patterns and am proud of the work I produced. So here is my top 12! 😜💛 #ibispaintx
So, no pattern today. In the meantime here are some patterns I came back to and tweaked a little. . I was working on today’s pattern last night (which looks great btw) and illustrator just quit on me. Of course nothing was saved yet, so rather than be super frustrated at restarting two hours of work, I’m just going to pick it back up tonight. . Is there anything you like to do when you get super frustrated? How d you deal with unexpected quips? . . . #patternjanuary#patternjanuary2019 ...
In many of my paintings I use circles! They could - if you use your imagination 😂🙈 - look like the end of a carpet roll. Today’s pattern - carpet rolls - swipe to se the full painting☺️ - Day 27: Roll #patternjanuary by @aisforanika #patterns
We love seeing how our Real Art Crew stays inspired. Check out these fun hand-drawn patterns our resident tessallation specialist @ohhopscotch did as part of the #patternjannuary challenge through @letsmakepatterns. - - - #patternjanuary2019
#patternjanuary2019 Day 20: “Scallop” I tried to do this print with a marker and pen on the airplane as we flew to Disney. However, I packed a crappy pen, it didn’t dry, and bled all over 🤦🏻♀️. So here is my vision in strictly vector. I’m taking some time to catch up with the themes that resonate with me. And boy, do I LOVE scallop prints! Might do a few that get posted in February, if I find the time. - - #letsmakepatterns
Day 29 of Pattern January (trying to catch up!): Vowels - wanted to draw hands signing letters, and liked the idea of pairing a silhouetted symbol to cue each sign. . . . #letsmakepatterns#patternjanuary
Pattern January day 28: curve . Got my days mixed up and accidentally went a day ahead. . I went rogue and just started on the computer!! No sketching. I also tried to just use only curved lines and curved shapes. . #patternjanuary#patternjanuary2019
Folktales...I actually don’t have any favorite folktale - maybe because I love stories in general! But... I still as an adult wonder what will happen if I kiss such a green little fella 🐸 even though I am very well married to my own prince❤️Day 26: Folktale #patternjanuary by @aisforanika #patterns
Pattern January day 26: folklore . I HAD SUCH A HARD TIME WITH THIS PROMPT. . I have always loved folklore, but I was having a VERY hard time translating that into a pattern. I didn’t want to go the “easy” route and do a folksy print, but then I just didn’t know. I’ve always loved the story’s about graveyards and hauntings so I just put in one of my favorite podcasts, Lore, and just started drawing. . #patternjanuary#patternjanuary2019 ...
I am a little behind, but today I made a pattern with old dial phones! Swipe and see the real dial phone from my childhood! I remember my friends had plastic phones in funny 70s colors I really admired - but now I think this one is so much more cool 😎Day 25: Vintage #patternjanuary by @aisforanika #patterns
Day 23 of Pattern January: Knick knacks! I didn’t have to look far for inspiration - I found these little vintage ceramic owls I found at an antique market, and they have been waiting patiently for some attention. . . . #printpattern#printandpattern
