Colorful Patterns Created with Linocuts by Andrea Lauren

Andrea Lau­ren is a pat­tern maker liv­ing in Asheville, North Car­olina.  Many of her col­or­ful, designy illus­tra­tions are inspired by nature, but she also throws some toys and tea in there, too. Andrea uses a vari­ety of hand-rendered tech­niques in her pat­tern pro­duc­tion, and they’re meant for dig­i­tal tex­tile print­ing. “I’m par­tic­u­larly drawn to linocuts, pen & ink, and cut […]

Pho­to­sen­si­tive solu­tion is applied to a sur­face (such as paper or fab­ric), and left to dry in a dark place.
