Mid-century inspired pattern

Fishy

This pattern is, well, a little bit of fun and arose out of time spent simply playing with Adobe Illustrator which is the way, of course, a lot of patterns and designs suddenly materialise.

It was not designed as fish and, to be honest, it was not until I had the design well underway that I realised that it could be fish navigating their way between little round yellow things that you would probably never find in the sea.

The end result was a pattern that you would, perhaps naturally, use at a very small scale but my attempts to do this were not very successful. What I believe was much more successful was to use the pattern at quite a large-scale on a big wall and create a very eye-catching and statement type design. I therefore used it on this very modern and very nice apartment block overlooking the warm ocean.

The wallpaper certainly catches the eye of a visitor and, to be honest, I had second thoughts about the pictures on the wall although without them the effect was too overpowering. The wall really needs something different although I was unable to find anything suitable. That aside, I have to admit to being pleased with the result and I think that, where this my apartment, I would be quite impressed even though my own tastes are less modern and more antique.

You can also see larger versions of this and my other work on my Flickr page which is here.
