Today I braved the rain and managed to get to the V&A quite early. After visiting the disconcerting 'Tomorrow' installation by Elmgreen & Dragset, I took in as much as possible for inspiration before I got too hungry (the cafe was ridiculously busy and expensive and even though I had budgeted myself a captive audience priced snack I still balked). I started off sketching but resorted to taking snaps on my camera phone, hence why the pics aren't great quality.

Whilst I'm on a 'work break' between VFX projects I thought I'd make myself busy and indulge in something a lot more creative. I've wanted to do this e-course for a while and finally bit the bullet and signed up. I'm into week 4 of Module 2 and it's really good to have briefs to work to. However I find it harder to get inspiration as soon as I have any limitations as to how to approach a new design. I've always loved 50's textiles and these 1950's tiles on Flickr that I just stumbled upon provide some ideas for motifs.
Lover of pattern and colour. I create my own designs, products and paintings.
