from pizza slice to full mandala in minutes. here are some visuals of what was happening during our live session tonight. i just finished teaching the master textile design creativity track and couldn't stop looking at this mandala and had to share.
2013 means more hands on creativity outside of the computer. to me anyways. i have spent the last several years freelancing and teaching and editing.. like a lot... it's time to bring color back onto this blog.. i am constantly surrounded by it and i am going to share it more
it had been quite a while since i used water color, thanks to katie rogers' class over at paper fashion i finally picked up my brushes again and doodled my fashion illustration that is based on my inspiration ( pinterest).
It's official Pantone announced next year's color of the year to be Emerald. A cool hue for us to enjoy throughout all of 2013, from fashion designs to home ware and more. This year we enjoyed the warm Tangerine Tango color
Creating the next live online Textile Masterclass series is a lot of fun. Part of the first series is how to create tie dye print within Photoshop. Entirely digitally without getting your fingers dirty. There are several easy steps like using a gradient and then putting a pattern on top of it with a Layer blending mode.
My June and July schedule for live classes is up and you can click here to see the details. Pretty much I have a set of beginners for Illustrator for fashion design and non fashion design and a beginners for Photoshop for fashion design and non fashion design.
Today I am sharing this great quick lovely video by Los Angeles Fashion Designer Eva Franco who let's us peak into her studio and follow along her design process.

Oh... I am so excited that Adobe is starting their sneak peeks. Being a beta tester with Adobe is a huge privilege, but the problem is that you are not allowed to talk about anything to anyone... yes we do have a forum to talk to about things to other pre-release tester, but it's not the same as talking to you Fashion and Textile design community.But here is something official that you can view and I won't get in trouble for. And it is a great new feature that has been requested for a long time. Background SAVE!
