Blue and Black Squares Patterns

These square patterns are older designs that I made in Illustrator a few years ago. I don’t normally make lots of colour variations of my art or patterns. It’s tempting, as a lot of work […]

Hand Lettered ‘Love’ Word Art

I enjoy hand lettering, although I don’t have a lot that I feel is good enough to share at this point. It’s something I definitely want to work on more, for both finished pieces and […]

Purple and White Glowing Swirl Abstract

This is another older digital abstract with a swirly theme, this time in white and purple. I made it in Photoshop a few years ago, and it’s very simple, but I still like it. Sometimes […]
