I’ve been thinking hard about the direction of my art lately. One thing I will not be spending as much time on is the pattern design for fabric. I cannot afford to put my time and energy into it right now. With Brexit looming it looks like the idea of using Spoonflower which is based in Germany might be too expensive anyway.
Since learning 3D art a little I have realized that I have to follow my passions and I have the right to do so. I think making patterns is a useful skill, but I will be combining it into my personal illustration projects from now on rather than making separate designs.
I will be concentrating more on my digital painting, concept art and personal project development going forward. My writing on Medium is also something I want to keep doing as I have had some positive feedback so far and I am hopeful that it is useful to people. To anyone reading this thank you for following my work, I appreciate it.
