Print out, colour in and stick on your fridge




The Pattern Library

This is where all of my patterns will be kept. I'll be tagging them so you can go straight to your favourites. The tags will appear in a list on the right. Just right click the link that says "Download and Print" to save the larger image to your hard drive. Then print it and get colouring! If you like your coloured-in picture, take a photo of it or scan it and send it to me. There is a Flickr group that I've set up for your coloured in patterns. I'll post the best to the blog. Keep checking back for the latest uploads!

Although all of the patterns are shown in strips the full downloadable image is much larger. On the left is a thumbnail example of how a full image looks.

I've decided to make things a bit simpler for you to print out my patterns. I'm going to convert all of the patterns to PDF, hopefully this will make your print options a lot simpler. Always remember to select "Scale to fit" in your print dialogue window! It'll take some time convert everything so bear with me. In the meantime please leave a comment and let me know if you like the new PDF versions.

0187: Ganbare Nippon

Here's a very special post that I've been meaning to make for some time. As you are aware Japan suffered a terrible disaster on 11 March 2011. Natsuki Otani, a contributor to this blog and also one of the founders of the very splendid Illustration Rally, set up a creative response to help the plight of those affected. My submission to this rally may be a little late in the day but I hope that you will respond in kind. Below is a colour version of my response to the Ganbare Nippon rally and below that is a link to a B/W outline colouring page where you can create your own version. Please visit and view the amazing submissions already posted on Illustration Rally and please use the links on their site to make a donation.
