Unfinished Pattern Series.

In June of 2016 I set out to develop a repeat pattern system. Today’s visual selection comes from the archived files of last year's creative activity.

I had completed the #1OODayProject and had moved on to a second round of repeats which went unfinished at about the same that I began the series featured in today's post.

This smaller smaller system of 6-8 patterns relate to one another with specific intention.

Compositions, drawing, sketches are shown. Noteworthy is the inclusion of the project’s mood board. At the time I thought, I should do more mood boards, which I don’t typically do.


  • It's okay to leave some creative inquiries unfinished
  • finish or complete them anyway
  • do more mood boards. they are fun
  • work things out in the sketch book every once in a while
