Yesterday I was in the beginning stages of making a “dots and squiggles” themed pattern, when suddenly, as I drew the squiggle at the bottom, I noticed something looking back at me.
It was one of those moments when I didn’t know whether to laugh or be creeped out by it. I think I did a little of both. It reminded me of my painting teacher who once said she always looks for faces in her finished artwork, as they can sneak up on you out of nowhere. Point taken.
Thankfully, as I drew more dots and squiggles, moved shapes and added color, the pattern emerged into something quite different though just as lively. It reminds me of confetti that you might find printed on gift wrap.
If I’m being totally honest, there is still a little squiggle in there that reminds me of an ear. But I rotated the shape in such a way that it doesn’t catch your attention quite as much. As least, I hope. 😉
