Animal Love Day
Hi everyone. Welcome to the 5th Animal Love Day. (Wow the weeks are flying!) As you probably know by now it’s a weekly feature where I showcase some lovely animal pattern and illustration.
I pick a different animal each week and firstly do my own illustration and then I showcase some fantastic animal patterns and illustrations by other designers
The animals covered will include birds, fish, insects, extinct creatures and mythical creatures.
Today’s guest star is such a pretty little thing. An inspiration for centuries, there are 175,000 species (including moths) and the only continent they can’t be found is in Antarctica.
So I would like to welcome the beautiful butterfly!
I created this design for Dawn Clarkson’s Butterfly Showcase for World Lupus Day on May 10th. You can see a sneak preview of the other designs further down this post.
Lovely and pretty pattern design from Rachael Taylor.
Butterflies and forest friends happy together in Amy King‘s pattern.
Sweet butterflies and flowers from Amy Schimler.
Geometric butterfly from Jillian Philips.
Pretty and feminine watercolour butterflies from Joelle Wehkamp.
Funky butterflies from Majo.
Simple butterfly and flowers from Dawn Machell.
Such a pretty illustration from Tamara Serrao. Lovely colours and motifs.
On May 10th it was World Lupus Day and Dawn Clarkson of Nice & Fancy Surface Pattern Design organised a Butterfly Showcase by some talented contemporary designers (and their children!).
That’s it for another Animal Love Day. I hope you enjoyed it.
I hope you come back next week for some more Animal Love! ♡
