I was looking at some wall paper done by the artist jeremy fish and I wonderd how he create an image that could repeat in pattern for ever. I thought about it for a good hour, studying it. I finally came up with the solution (it has to do with math and centering the image in 5parts) . So now I can make my own repeat pattern for gift wrapping, or wall paper, or computer desktop backrounds.
it's kindah fun. Here the image. Download it and then test it out on your own computer, set it as the desktop and then "tile" setting if your have a Mac.
A large format poster design for a blogging conference that's going on here in Vancouver called Northern Voice. I really enjoyed making this poster, and got into the little details of the backround. I like the idea of creating a story in my work and am starting to enjoy the process more then the finished product (though I do enjoy the end result.)
