Going Back To My Roots

New pattern

I was feeling inspired by Scandinvian design yesterday, so I decided to go back to my textiles roots. This morning I designed a pattern for possible jacket cover and or endpapers. For anyone that knows me, knows that I love endpapers and I love pattern.

Life’s A Peach

I thought I'd post another  book jacket design on this sunny morning.  I'm going to try and get some more on here soon.
