I’ve been wanting to spend more time developing my illustration skills, and after an inspiring trip to HOW 2012 in Boston I got the jump start I was looking for. Last year, I did a bunch of reading about personal style and determined that my personal style is Classic. The classic style clothing, accessories, and paper crafts that I saw in some Boston shops got stuck in my head. I started a pattern illustration project based on a classic-preppy-nautical theme. This hexagon pattern was the first one I made, in a variety of color palettes.
