Autumn has started for a month now, but the typical colors and plants of this season have inspired me to make this illustration/pattern made of leaves. You can see the transformation from the scanned rough sketch to the final piece. In a future post, i will detail the steps i take to arrive to the final illustration.

An olive oil bottle with a twist

I discovered recently an amazing illustrator and pattern designer, Moniquilla (http://masmoniquilla.blogspot.com.es). She makes repeat patterns with watercolor, markers, colored pencils,... and later applies it to textiles, iphone cases, notebooks, etc. She seems to be able to clone herself, when you see how many things she does! Anyway, i found an online course from her on how to make repeat patterns, and below is what i came up with. We had to think about a final product for our pattern, and i chose an olive oil packaging. Now that i am living in Spain, i discovered how important this ingredient is in their diet. I really love it! But i am always a bit disappointed in the bottle designs in the supermarket. So i decided to lift it up and applied the pattern i designed to a glass bottle.
