'Balloon Parade'

Most of last week has been spent getting on to the next stage of 'The Various Jobs'. Still waiting for more work on 'Girly Giftbook'. There's an ominous silence which always worries me. Am nearly ready to start final part of Disney work - it should be done and dusted by the end of the month. I am still struggling with one of the main characters from 'Woodland Creatures'. I've always had problems with this one for some reason - I can't seem to nail the little crittur! It's the face that's causing the problems - I've been liasing back and forth with the art director, but I need to sit down and give it my 100% attention when the other two jobs are finished. Completed the Bird commission and have to crack on with 'the Onward Journey' as the christening is happening in - ohh, only ten days time!
In between all this I managed to get some more small works finished. I am very pleased with this one, and would like to take it on a stage as a giftwrap proposal, but there are Difficult Things like designing it to a 'step and repeat' pattern and my simple brain has problems with that kind of technicality...

Difficult, no doubt - but you should pursue it: that would make GREAT giftwrap :)

Its great! There is an easy way to work out repeating patterns in photoshop, under filter/other/offset. It might be worth doing a rough and just paying about with it in this to get you head around doing a repeating pattern on paper. Just a thought.

thank you Ed (2nd class) and Frances...I shall try that in Photoshop, but I'm sure you'll hear my screams in cyberspace!

I agree with 2nd class Ed. Balloon Parade would be great in a number of contexts -- cards, wrapping, wallpaper for a child's room...

It's wonderful. I'd like to fly away in one of the balloons!
