Thesis Final - The Full Lindsay Collection

Phew! I made it. At least through part one. My final critique went very well and I must say great job to all the other seniors! I was lucky enough to sit in on Rebecca and Whitney's final crits and work in both classes were simply stunning.

The night before my final I went to the studio to mark everything, good thing too because there was a lot to hang.



A huge Thank You to Melissa Prentki, my beautiful model, I don't know how I got so lucky to find her with spare time on her hands. We shot in my living room and my broken pathetic wall was a perfect backdrop. Thank you to Colin O'Connor as well for helping me use a camera..definitely not my strongest suit. But I couldn't be happier with how the photos came out. I'm ecstatic that I get to keep them and frame them now!

By the end I was definitely ready to move on from the blossoms. However, I'm glad I stuck to the one theme through-out. I'm not done with flowers forever by any means but I'm excited to see what else comes out next semester. I'm consider many different options and hopefully I'll have some time over this break to do some testing.

Anyway, I dedicated this collection to my sister, Lindsay, it all reminds me of her so much.

Thanks to everyone for a great semester! Happy Holidays!

Zara Girls

There are a few outfits from Zara right now that I just love, and I've been meaning to test out the gouache my friend bought me for my birthday in September, hence this illustration!



It took a decent amount of photoshop to touch up all the mistakes but overall I'm very happy with the gouache. I still need to buy a lot of colors, such as burnt umber, I'm just useless without.

Art Market



I'm so excited this year! I've got some great stuff planned. If you'd like to see(or buy!) some of my work come down to Art Market this December. It's a great place to buy one-of-a-kind Christmas gifts that your family will love. Wow I sound like some lame advertisement right now but it's honestly great. I hope to see you all there! I'll post more photos of what I'll be selling as the date gets closer.

Annaleigh Collection

More bedding! I'm having so much fun with these and I love putting together these little palettes when I'm done. This one is called The Annaleigh Collection, named after one of my favorite people.




I photoshopped my own patterns onto a down comforter set by The Down Factory Store and the rug is by Momeni which can be bought at Macy's.

Wow somehow I had time to do some sketching. Here's a sketch I did today. Enjoy!

Eleni Collection





I've always wanted to do this! One of my goals is to design bedding collections so I designed this collection and photoshopped it into this beautiful Down Collection by Charter Club found at Macy's. I named it The Eleni Collection after my best friend.

Garment Pattern #3 is finished!

The first two fabrics have arrived and I've finished the design for the third pattern and it's been ordered. It's more similar to the first pattern than the third. I'm not quite as happy with the second fabric as the first. It's all my own fault because I didn't check the scale of the pattern before ordering and it's slightly too big. Everything else is fine though.

I have to praise Spoonflower again for their excellent service. Sure it's slightly pricey but the quality is great and I couldn't be happier with what they've done. I highly recommend it for all of you artists out there who are interested in fabric printing your work!



In other news, I signed up for MICA's Art Market today so expect to see some progress on that soon.

Another Forgotten Pattern

I'd also forgotten this one. It got lost in my pattern folder and I hadn't realized I didn't post it on my blog.

Leaves


I completely forgot to post this pattern when I made it a couple weeks ago. I'd like to do more leaf patterns because fall is my fave! But thesis has taken over my life.

Garment #3 pattern

Here's the rough draft for garment pattern #3. There are subtle differences between 1 and 2 but I can't decide between them. Also there's something I like about the blue but in repeat it doesn't look quite as good as the others. I think the blue is just a nice change from the first two patterns.

Garment #2 in progress

Although my fabric is here (yay!) I can't start sewing until pattern #3 is out for printing. If I don't stick to my schedule the pieces won't be done in time. In the meantime, pattern #2 is out for printing and is expected to be here in approximately two weeks. Just in time for pattern #3 to be finished. Anyway, here's #2 in progress.



I fixed up a few things since I posted it last. Whitney Sherman, my independent study professor suggested that the leaves looked too much like bat wings and that I should invert them. I completely agreed and I think the result is great!



Here's my sketch for the garment. I'm not quite as thrilled about it as the last one. Although, I'm pretty confident that it'll look good with the pattern I've created.

Lastly, here's my muslin version. Again, I'm not as happy with it as the last one, but I do thing it'll look good when it's finished.

My fabric finally came!

Yay! This is so exciting. The first time I've printed a pattern design. I'm very happy with how it turned out. The fabric is so soft and the colors are so vibrant. Spoonflower did a great job!



Uh oh, now I fear that I'll become addicted to this and spend my life away printing fabric. There are worse things I suppose.

Jane patterns

I'm naming this my Jane collection. I think they're the prettiest and daintiest patterns I've done yet and I think it's my romantic side showing through. When I read old novels I always seem to love the characters named Jane, especially Jane Eyre and Jane Bennet.

This time I thought to include the color palette. I really need to do that more often.
