While I was working on the Little Spooks Collection (1, 2) I came across some old drawings of mine that sparkled an idea for another collection.
The characters in those drawing are not as cute as my usual creatures. They are crazier and wilder but still fun and appealing. Their irrational and rougher charm found its way to the process of creating repeat patterns. I played with bumpy and irregular textures and used spots, spills and lines clustered and scattered to coordinates with the characters' spirit.
