Did you know that iStockphoto release a free vector and image each week? Neither did I until I paid attention to the email in my inbox and now I watch out for them. This pomegranate came free a couple of weeks ago and fitted with my current fruit obsession. Something I haven’t done in a long while is a palette and pattern post so I thought I would make them a regular feature again. Now why did I stop?
My two patterns were inspired by the first round of logo development I did a couple of years ago. I came across a very rough single line pear drawing I did when brainstorming ideas for Crimson Pear. I thought it would be fun to reminisce and include it in a pattern. The second one is actually the middle of my current, but soon to be superseded, logo. I created both patterns using Illustrator CS6′s new pattern maker tool, which I’m not sure I completely understand how to drive and while I sit here and type I can see a couple of errors so don’t look too closely.
