Seasonal Lamp - Summer Pattern

  • The purpose of this project was to design a pattern to be printed on a lamp while drawing influence from a chosen season of the year and anything that it evokes.

    I chose to base my pattern around Summer travel or, more specifically, Summer travel in Southern California.

    This was an experiment in stylization as well, an attempt to channel some mid-century methods of illustration, and I am very pleased with my results.

    My design was sent away to be printed on a lampshade and returned within a few weeks, so as to emulate the experience of licensing artwork to a home decor company.
