Ink Drawing Patterns ︎︎︎

This collection of designs for fabric was adapted from experimental ink drawings I made inspired by the quick gestural marks associated with brush calligraphy. I also had in mind the fluid immediacy of spray paint tagging and a collection of photographs I had taken of marks made as graffiti around Edinburgh. These designs are bold and painterly, capturing the beauty of chance happenings and mistakes made while drawing with ink. The colour palette of inky blues and blacks contrasted with deep red underlines the reference to calligraphy.

The collection was selected by Uppercase Magazine to be featured in their 2021 Surface Pattern Design Guide.
