Print/Texture

This top print not being overly successful but does highlight the different tools used to create the marks within the designs.

Formulating print designs digitally, I found this process a lot less looser than how I normally work when I am thinking of print design. Abstract shapes and marks using a variety of brushes and opacity levels within adobe illustrator. I felt this process did free me up as to do this by hand I wouldn’t of let the organic structures of the shape work like that, which then for me loses the abstract feel of shape and line potentially allowing the print to become flat and not very interesting.
