latest drawings for cat-owls
Here they are: the first drawings for my new line of Cat-Owls. Seeing them on paper makes it easier for me to spot common themes or the overall look of the line. It also makes it easier to edit and choose the ones to expand on, until I have a fabulous batch of Cat-Owls ready for handmade production.
I'm particularly fond of the triangular pattern and can just about guarantee seeing this pattern in full screen-printed glory in the near future. I also think the polka-dots and stripes are fun, although I'm debating whether the stripes are too plain. Maybe larger, bolder stripes? And lastly, I experimented with the "fish-scales" and have decided to keep them as the loopy pattern, but will also be trying other variations to spice things up.
As for their "pants," the solid colors will be narrowed down to five options: grey, orange, dark teal, royal blue, light turquoise and apple green. Wait, that's six ... I can work with that.
And then there is choosing the background fabric colors for their "shirts." The only color I'm certain about is pink because pink and orange should never be apart. And light grey because it looks good with everything. The rest of the color options need more investigating and experimenting to materialize into final decisions.
So, until then it's back to the drawing board.
