>Sketch Every Day: 2.8.11


I’ve never really been a big fan of bold geometric patterns…always seem too structured and contemporary.  Hand-painted or woven geometrics felt too tribal.  Don’t get me wrong, I think they’re all beautiful in their own way, they’re just not “me”… But lately, I’ve found myself drawn to and intrigued by some patterns that are showing up in fashion, fabrics for home decor and even paper goods.  Today’s sketch is a very quick and loosely scribbled rendition of three popular patterns: Ikat (intricate “resist” tie-dye process for fabrics), Chevron and Marrakech (or Moroccan/Moorish motifs).

Mason describes this as some sort of space jet getting ready to go head-to-head with another in an outer-space battle… 
…The pilot of the smaller spacecraft, upon seeing the looming size of the attacker, says “Oh Snap.”
