Animal Love Day – Unicorn!

dreaming-on-a-star-surface-pattern-design-illustration-tina-devins-cute-quirky-inspiration-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 creatureThe Unicorn!

 

DREAM

 

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. Read more…

Animal Love Day ‚Äď Butterfly

Dreaming on a Star - 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 liked the idea of repetitive shapes and wanted to do a purely geometric design. Everything is designed around circles and ovals. I am also a massive Kawaii fan and love their cute, simple designs and bright, happy colours. Read more…
