Something to tide you over whilst I finish working on my new project I haven’t added these to the pattern archive in the usual way since everything will be remodeled very shortly. Feel free to use this particular set in personal or commercial projects but it be very polite to credit me!
See you when I finish my project

It might shock you all to learn this, but I love patterns. Carrying on from my last pattern resource post here’s three great websites offering orginal, creative patterns for your use. Please remember to refer to each individual websites term of service
Everything Changes colourful pattern collection is wonderfully colourful, each pattern working in perfect harmony with its self. They’re great for graphics or, if you’re feeling courageous, making bold backgrounds.
Pink Blossom doesn’t have a large collection of patterns but the few they offer range from beautifully intricate to more sublet stripes. These patterns would work perfectly as backgrounds without overpowering the rest of your website.
The talented staff at Shizoo Design offer a whole range of resources from brushes to textures but I’m particularly fond of their patterns Ranging from cartoon characters to grunge textures you simply have to find something you like here.
Design Inspiration: Morrissey Record Covers
Posted 21st of July 2012 — Inspiration: patterns.
I’ve loved these early nineties record sleeves since I first saw them on Tumblr a while ago. The combinations of pattern, colour and type perfectly recreate retro style and someone could be excused for believing these are really 1940s classics.
Step by Step – Crown of Thorns
Posted 5th of July 2012 — Sketchbook: illustration, patterns, walkthroughs.
I haven’t had much time for personal work this week – I’m working on so many projects at once I finally know what it feels like to be a designer After a week or so of looking at web designs my eyes need a break from grids and columns so I decided to work on an illustration. Yeah, you know you’re a graphic designer when you talk breaks from designing for a living by designing for fun. I thought an animation would be a fun way of displaying how I did this! Unforunately it’s a little over sharpened but the final art work doesn’t look like that.
I decided to turn that halo around his head into a pattern (yes his, I used one of my favourite models Andrej Pejic as a reference). Since I already had the animation toolbar open in PhotoShop for some reason I animated this too. Don’t ask.
The (non-animated) pattern has been added to the floral category. As always I’d love to see if you make use of it
