What I wrote with my submission: 
These are small (3x3”) paper weavings from reject color laser printouts of my surface designs. I design prints for a mass market underwear and loungewear company. Since I create artwork for both women’s panties and men’s loungewear, I’m combining the feminine and masculine patterns into one weaving. I’m deliberately choosing combinations that “don’t match”. I started this project on 1/23/19 and since I have an endless supply of reject prints, the project will continue indefinitely.

100 days of Procreating

I reached my 100/100th Procreate texture doodle yesterday and Tumblr marked it as X-rated:
I appealed and they quickly let it post, but geez!
This design is now officially called "Sexy Spirals"
What's next? Will I keep at it and go beyond 100? I think yes.

I also want to figure out how to marry Stephen Sidelinger's surface design syllabus with teaching Procreate and pitch it as an e-course for Otis Extension.
