Sunny Days Pattern

I’ve got a new Sunny Days illustration and pattern in my print-on-demand stores that’s perfect for summer.

This is a very old pattern from 2017 that I originally created in Amaziograph – a really fun kaleidoscope drawing app. I turned it into a real repeat in 2019 for Patreon wallpapers but wasn’t sure it fitted my style. A few days ago I redrew it in Illustrator and I think it looks very jolly for summer.

I needed a single sun for certain products and ended up almost liking it more than the pattern. I’ll be sharing a free wallpaper with this design in my newsletter this Friday so go sign up.
