Pattern

The theme for Illustration Friday is pattern and it suits me down to the ground. Visually I sort for pattern and see it in almost everything I look at - I have patterns in my head all the time, so I had a job deciding what to do this week.
I've recently been doodling to music and letting the lines flow with the rhythm and, seeing as I live with a songwriter I thought I'd better use one of his - my favourite. Coincidentally it's about changing patterns of behaviour and is called 'shut my mouth'. You can listen to it here if you like. (Hope this link works.)

Oh, I KNEW you'd own this word. You ROCKED it! Such fantastic patterns, and it goes so well with the song (which had me swaying, by the way -- so lovely).

Ah, Nicky - you're definitely the Queen of pattern!! Love your idea of doodling to the music - what a talented pair you and your partner are!

Wonderful patterns, made me think of Australia. The music was icing on the cake.

It does has some similarity of aboriginal art with a modern touch of pattern.

Very nice. Reminiscent of psychedelic 1960s poster designs!
