C is for Cuckoo Clock. This was the first month of Lilla Rogers Mats Bootcamp online course. The brief was to create a mobile phone cover featuring a cuckoo clock design. We started off with a mini assignment drawing all sorts of cuckoo clocks and decorative doodles.
This was then scanned into the computer and translated into digital illustrations.
I’ve been enjoying making lots of prints and patterns to match the main cuckoo clock illustration.
& here is my final cuckoo clock illustration (above) and the final layout I submitted to the February MATS bootcamp gallery (below)
After completing the mobile phone cover I couldn’t resist having a play with the patterns and repeats that were naturally appearing out of the cuckoo clock illustration; the borders and scallop designs and the Eidelweiss icons (Lilla loves a good icon!).Below are two bolt fabric designs and co-ordinating repeats using the cuckoo clock as the main starting point
