Week 11 (07/11/2016 – 13/11/2016) – Holiday Cheer
Ooooh yes, Christmas!
This girl LOVES Christmas and she ain’t ashamed to admit it. Despite the grumblings of over-commercialization and all that bah-humbug-ness, it’s still one of my favourite times of year. I spent a lot of time (and money, let’s be honest) last year procuring decorations to “festivize” our new home, which I had a little too much fun with. On quiet days, I enjoy browsing the Christmas displays of various stores.
To get into the holiday spirit, this week’s illustration was inspired by one of the many gift bags I have stored away for Christmas gift-giving purposes (side note: I may have a slight obsession with gift bags). This pattern is pretty simple due to the limited colour palette and the repetitive nature of the main components. However, just looking at this pattern makes me feel all cheery inside, so I’m excited to kick off another holiday season with this Christmas-inspired illustration.
