Week 44: Adobe Illustrator

Shibori Stripes © Karen Thiessen, 2012
Shibori Stripes is a detour. I attempted to replicate the stripe pattern of the Japanese bowl in Adobe Illustrator but it looked stiff and boring. In order to get the correct spacing of the stripes in the boring pattern I needed to create several iterations, so I wasn't about to toss all that work away. The "rough" effect saved the day and now I have a dynamic pattern that reminds me of a gorgeous scarf that I Shibori dyed many moons ago.

Interesting solution to the "boring" problem! The stripes on the bowl might be getting much of their interest from the irregularities caused by the shape of the bowl?
