Bespoke hand painted wallpaper length...
I wanted my wallpaper designs to all be commercial and aimed at the male market. I wanted to create designs that were abstract but would still sell in high end stores. once I had created my final collection, however, I felt that a bespoke hand painted piece would look really gorgeous if it fit in with the collection in a similar way.
I'm really pleased with how it turned out and I think because of the linear qualities and the coloring it still works with my commercial collection.

The final Major Project

scaffolding sketches

I tried to keep my drawings sheets busy either through collaging different bits of paper and drawing over them or by overlapping my drawings to create something more abstract. I felt this helps with the design process.

Some fabric samples to match!
