Beaty Heart - Banana Bread

Pattern in music videos must be a thing now. I'm gonna post music videos here whenever I come across patterns in them. Hope you enjoy XXX

I made a cushion for my friend Mark Hearld's birthday. One side is applique and embroidery on printed Kente fabric and the other side is calico with butterflies drawn with fabric pens. It was fun to make!  

As a reaction against many bland patterns I see being produced here is a new pattern called "Revolt".

This one is a bit of a higgledy-piggledy, postmodern, do what you like kinda pattern. No rules to break - which is where I like to reside with pattern making. 
I inverted the colours and tada! A much better looking pattern turned out. I  love it when that happens. It makes me feel cleverer than I actually am. 

Top pattern inverted
Bottom original made with felt tips yeh!

Composer Nico Muhly mentioning an issue that has affected me lately. I spotted some of my ideas in the work of a fellow artist who follows me on social media. I suppose I'm divided about the issue. I'd be happier about it if I was getting paid or some sort of recognition for this pattern/ illustration lark- and this artist seems to have a higher profile than me (because I am basically unknown). Anyway here is to original ideas- I still believe in those! :)

Now for some FUN!!!!!!!!!!!!!
