Bundles of warm characters jump and dance around in the patterns created by Harriet Seed. Rather than just the one or two repeated drawings, there are collections of people animals and objects jostling around the cities and forests. This gives her work many little things to look for and discover.

Patterns inspired by structures in her surroundings feature in Hannah Waldron’s eclectic mix of work. Her designs are a detailed patchwork of decoration, masses of bold primary colours and sets of fine, parallel lines. While she applies the same draughtsman-like style to her drawings and screen prints, she also works in textiles.

Using what seems to be a mixture of collage and drawing, Jules Julien created these gorgeous prints for T-shirts. I love how the patterns lead into one another. Being monochrome, the contrast of the busier, filled areas against the blocks of black that create simple shapes, makes for a dramatic effect.
