What do you do when you're waiting for software to install? I grab scratch paper and let the doodles flow. If you look closely enough, you'll see the black print from the front - a Nursing Week flyer from a stack left outside the hospital cafeteria - where I no longer go b/c I'm working from home! Yahoooo. (Sorry, Holly, you know I love you dearly. And look what happened to your pretty flyer! You're still part of the daily process at Daisy Janie!)
This is a typical doodle for me (remember this handpainted mirror?). And it's very "design within reach." I happened to have a jarful of Jack's Crayola pencils sitting nearby, and the sharpie with the dual-tipped ends is never more than an arm's length away. It's kind of pod-ish, kind of conch shell-ish, kind of leaf-ish. All elements of pure fascination for me. Very feminine.
I will disect this design in Illustrator over the next few days and reconfigure it into a fabric design. I have another pod like design that's awaiting a similar treatment. They might have to be friends.
