Inked Blossoms is a floral print motivated by menswear. I started thinking about men’s dress shirts, and the ink pens they usually hold in the chest pocket. I thought, what would a flower look like if it was created by an exploding pen? I used concentrated water colors to hand-paint these flowers. They were then scaned into Adobe Photoshop where I cleaned them up and created a repeat.
I went more literal for the secondary print, putting a twist on the classic herringbone pattern. The ink pens and lines were created in Adobe Illustartor.
