IF - pattern


A pattern of characters from Theodore the Tree, for this week's Illustration Friday challenge.
This will be used as the endpapers in the book and it happens to be one of my favorite pages. I've always been a big fan of patterns and use them a lot in my work, so I guess that's why.
I love patterns so much, I may just have to do something new for this challenge, later this week.

I love this pattern! The characters are so charismatic! Thank you for your comment on my blog. Painter is quite similar to Photoshop but the brushes mimic real art materials, and are much more intuitive for artists! :)

That's a great idea. It will look so good as the endpapers. It's nice to see all the characters presented in this way! Very bright and cheery! Thanks for your idea by the way! You're so creative! I'll have to try and make myself a monkey a-b-c :)
