Sketching as Deadlines Loom, "The Sketchbook Project"

 I have signed up for a local sketchbook project and have been busy filling my Moleskine sketchbook with my beloved flower motifs. What I love about projects such as these is that they give you so much material for future designs. If you need to build your motif design library I highly recommend signing for a Sketchbook Project. Whether it is the one from Brooklyn, New York or through your local Arts organization, it is so worth it! I did the New York one back in 2011, you can view it here if you would like.
I have been playing a lot with vine type line. These make great backgrounds for large layered florals in Surface Pattern Design
