Oh how time flies and I’ve certainly been thinking about patterns… just not so successful in finalizing them. In my explorations, I’ve come to realize that I don’t have issues learning the digital process and the math that goes into figuring out how certain repeats work… we can all learn those technical aspects.

The real trick is the truly right-brain art… of why something seems to work and why another technically correct repeat just isn’t so interesting. Maybe it is partially thinking about what the final surface would be and how it will be used. There are so many other aspects to surface pattern design. I have been so focused on the technical aspect, I think I’ve missed the important stuff…

Also, being the stage of exploring… means a lot of random things are produced. It doesn’t always go together or make a whole. I’ve definitely come to realize there is a very non-learnable part about design, if that makes sense. Definitely pondering this…
