Thanks again so much to everyone for voting for me in the first round! I really appreciate all of the support. The second round of patterns are up http://theprintedbolt.com/! This month the theme was the Industrial Revolution. Which seemed tricky initially... As usual I went through the 5 stages of creative development:
1) Panic- What the hell am I going to do?
2) Excitement- Start doodling things, this is so much fun!
3) Frustration- I hate how this is looking... It's horrible!
4) Determination- I'm going to figure out why I don't like it and make it better!
5) Acceptance- I tried to push myself creatively, fix things that were bad and now its out of my hands.
