Mid Century Masculine


I’ve been thinking about surface patterns and how not a lot of my art is very appealing to the proper gentleman. So I decided to have a go at designing something that would fit the bill.

I discovered that I am a huge fan of mid century style patterns and colours and coincidentally lots of these tend to be quite masculine – for obvious reasons now that I think about it!

gold and blue zig zag

I liked the idea of keeping things geometric and sharp – with the exception of the irregular squares of course – I felt that those needed an uneven border to keep it interesting and not looking like an American grid system!

Anyway, will probably have a go at some more, although the ones above can of course be produced in differing colourways.
