Mastering your Market class

For a lil birthday present for yours truly I signed up for the Mastering Your Market online textile design course! This six week course will cover the basics of working in the three major markets of the textile business. I am looking forward to being in "school" again and learning new things, making more artwork, and thinking strategically.  I stumbled across the class on the website Pattern Observer There will be more posts to follow with my progress! Check it out if you are looking for the next step in designing textiles. 

Inspiration for my first backbeat in the apparel industry.... trends of sartorial surrealism, old masters with a pop twist, floral disruption, and line drawings.
