Cat Pattern Madness

Last week I decided I wanted to make some patterns for my RedBubble shop items. Never having made patterns before, I wasn’t really sure how to start, so I just dove right in. I wrote down a bunch of ideas, my daughter did as well, and I just started painting. I think the hardest part is sorting the actual pattern in Photoshop, but with enough tries, it’s starting to feel easier. Below are all the patterns, and a sample, that I’ve made thus far. =)

Coffee and Cats

My two favorite things! Although Chai tea is definitely sneaking in there, neck and neck with coffee. Shhh….don’t tell though. Maybe I should paint with tea next? Β A tea cat…


“Coffee Cat in Stripes”

An original illustration and coffee & watercolor painting.

What’s more apropos than a coffee cat painted in coffee? =D

Painted on Arches Watercolour, cold pressed, 300g/m2 140lb, 100% pure cotton, acid-free paper.

Size 9″ x 12″ – sprayed with a matte varnish.


Last week, and spilling into the weekend… I was working on patterns. I always wanted to make some patterns, but was unsure how to go about it. So I just started drawing in my sketchbook and tried to figure it out. Ultimately, by the time I got to the last pattern, cats and coffee, I think I simplified and it figured it out. I am definitely going to have to pick up some items with these cats and coffee! Click the image, or here to see all the items available.
