Constructivist Croquis

For this project, I created a series of three ideas for fabric designs based on the Constructivist art movement.  A stripe, a grid, and a paisley which all had to relate to each other using the same colors.  After studying the works of Russian Constructivists like El Lissitzky and the Stenberg Brothers, I came up with the following designs:

I chose to draw from the Constructivists because my work usually features a very organic line, and I thought it would be interesting to try a more machine-like approach.  It was a fun experiment for me, but I think it’s apparent that this style is a little out of my comfort zone.  It was a challenge to figure out how to create something that resembled paisley out of such geometric shapes!

Here’s all the tape I used to mask off areas to get a sharper edge!
