The Evolution Of A Design From Drawing To Finished Product

This summer I worked on some illustrations and was really pleased with my finished designs...

I drew some mandalas, artistic feathers, and some other various designs...and I blogged about them just a little bit over the summer, and shared a couple very short videos on my YouTube channel as I was drawing them.

I decided to transform my designs into textiles and a few different products, and turn them into a collection available in a few different color schemes, and here are a few samples...I think the pillow below is especially beautiful!

Bloom Mandala in Ocean Throw Pillow

My original drawing, which is a freehand drawn mandala sketched in ink.

I always wanted to design home decor and fashion, so I am excited to get started and test the waters with designing some test products of my own. 

Bloom Mandala in Plum Comforters

It's really amazing to see the transformation of something that was once just and idea in my head, and then a drawing, turn into a beautiful product that people can wear or use in their homes and everyday lives.
