Textile Inspiration & Illustrative Photos

April 30th, 2012

I find when I’m searching for inspiration for patterns or textiles I often start by looking at objects rather than the actual patterns on things. I love to find a collection of objects with a similar purpose or hand that I can group together to discover a new shape or texture. Here’s one of my recent inspirational collections:

Illustrative Photography:

While I’m not sure if “illustrative photography” is a term, I love how interesting it looks when people draw over photographs. Here’s a recent collection- while I want Bernhard Wilhelm’s image to be my favorite, I’m most drawn to Saul Steinberg’s cats and stools…the others belong to Johan Thornquist and Gennine.
