Happy Patterns by Kensie Kate

I love designing patterns. I think it's so fun to play with colors and shapes, but it's been way too long since I've made patterns just for fun. I gave myself a fun project and decided to make a bunch with the challenge that none of them could have a white background. 

Once I got started, it was hard to stop! Here's the first batch. Which one is your favorite?

This post is the last of 3 parts of a fun project I gave myself. I put my Insta-stalking skills to the test and then illustrated 30 pairs of sunglasses worn by The Alison Show. Which pair is your favorite?

Remember that time that I came up with an idea that led to me insta-stalking 5 years of someone's life?! Here's another round of sunglasses worn by The Alison Show that I illustrated. Enjoy!

It's been a long time since I've done any illustrations just for fun, so for a while now, I've been wanting to give myself a challenge to get back into it. On my way to church, I had this idea that I just couldn't let go of. I'm a huge fan of Alison Faulkner (also known as The Alison Show) for years and I decided to illustrate 30 different pairs of sunglasses she's worn in selfies. This required some really intense Insta-stalking (um, I scrolled all the way back to 2012) but the creepiness was worth it (I hope. Alison, please don't be freaked out.) and I love how this project turned out. Here's the first set—which one is your favorite?
