Animal Love Day
Hi everyone. Apologies that there was no Animal Love Day last week. I was swamped with work for my upcoming shop. Anyway welcome back to another fabulous Animal Love Day, showcasing lovely animal pattern and illustration.
As you know I will firstly show you a new illustration/sketch/pattern from me and then a lovely showcase of fabulous designers.
The animals covered will include birds, fish, insects, extinct creatures and mythical creatures, and this week marks the first mythical creature – The Unicorn!
I actually had a dream about a Unicorn last week! I dreamt a friend visited me and we went outside to my back garden. Of course, in dreams things aren’t as they seem, and my back garden was different. There was a low wall and behind that was a woodland.
Well what happened only a Unicorn jumped over the wall just as I was about to look over it! Apparently it was my pet, because I told my friend just that!
The Unicorn wasn’t tall, like you see in films, but a tiny creature, smaller than a shetland pony. It was chestnut brown and scuttled about my garden, so I couldn’t catch up with it!
So I would like to say a magical welcome to this beautiful, mystical creature – The Unicorn!
I associate unicorns with rainbows and clouds probably because they’re mythical creatures. I am also influenced by My Little Pony from my youth.
My Little Pony Unicorn from the 1980s and My Little Pony Unicorn today:
I love how they made them more Kawaii with their large eyes and cute bodies!
Cute Unicorn in a soft colour palette from Dawn Bishop.
Love this quote! Quirky colourful Unicorn from Dawn Machell.
I love everything about this illustration by Flora Chang – the colours, the drawing, the stars, the scribbles, the texture. It is so wonderful.
Such a whimsical pattern of beautiful Unicorns by Lab Partners.
Candy Kingdom from Paperchase. Look at all those happy friends!
Another fabulous illustration with so much to inspire – the linework, the colours and I love the Unicorn’s expression! Quirky illustration by Sarah Walsh.
Such a sweet little unicorn from Vilaine Fraise.
And finally a funny Unicorn!
(I haven’t been able to find the designer of this illustration. If you know can you tell me, so I can give credit.)
So that’s it for another Animal Love Day and our lovely animal friends.
