a peek inside my sketchbook- pattern mash up

Last Friday I shared some photos of a recent runway show at Sao Paulo Fashion Week (you can see the post HERE). I was incredibly inspired by the clothing and not for the obvious reasons. You see, inspiration for my art and my creative process exists in everything- even fashion. And while I won't be wearing clothing like this any time soon, I was SUPER inspired and motivated to incorporate the elements that I loved (the mash up of crazy, wild pattern and color) into my sketching and doodling process! Here is a little peek into my sketchbook...

very cool! i encourage my students to look for creative moments outside the art room and we have an accumulating collage of photos and drawings they've shared outside the walls of school :) Love the colors and mash ups of designs! Thanks for sharing!

I love how you can take something you're inspired by, and create something that is similar but not the same, something that is clearly influenced by but not at all a copy of--a combination of theirs & your styles. Awesome.
