I've been experimenting more with patterns and illustrations which has been a blast. It's funny, I am such a minimalist in so many ways - why would I be into patterns so much (with so much color to boot)? Patterns can get busy so quickly and I almost never wear them myself or have them in my home.
However, when these patterns or illustrations are for kids, it somehow works for me. I can bring out my inner silly child. It just flows naturally to me. Kid clothing and decor is supposed to be fun and whimsical. Plus it gives a "home" to my illustrations - my awkward animals have to live somewhere, right? :)
