welcome julia and how to make a repeat pattern

I am very excited to be here. Besides introducing you to some cool artists, giving sneak peeks and before and afters of some friends homes, and sharing my favorite new product finds, I thought it would be nice to share some of the things I have learned along the way of being a illustrator/pattern designer. One of the questions I frequently get emailed is -how do you make a repeat pattern? I thought it would be fun today to do a little tutorial showing you how simple it is even with a very complex drawing. And you don’t even need a computer! On a clean piece of paper draw a design in the middle of your paper without letting any of the drawing touch the edges- this is very important.

Once you finish the middle space as much as you want you are going to cut your drawing in half- scary I know- but that’s why computers are helpful. Next you are going to cut your drawing in half again the other way- (yikes!) And here’s my finished design: A painting a Week. The Premier Global Online Destination for Art and Culture. Vintagraph - Vintagraph Fine-Art Wall Prints and Posters. Japanese Fart Scrolls. I was doing research for another post a while back, and found something a bit…unusual.

Japanese Fart Scrolls

It was an old Japanese scroll about farting. No, you didn’t misread that last sentence. The whole scroll, which is called He-Gassen (“The Fart Battle”) is just about people farting. Farting at other people, farting at cats, farting off of horses, farting into bags; just farting everywhere. Why? I found some relevant articles on my old university’s academic databases, but the only way I could obtain them would be to request them printed out and go pick them up.
