Hi there! I’m so thrilled to be the newest contributor here – I hope we’ll become fast friends. I thought I’d tell you just a little bit about myself and then dive right in to my first artist. I’m Bryna – a freelance illustrator, photographer and yoga teacher based in Portland, Oregon. I have a particular love for surface design, and that’s what I’ll cover here on the blog. When I first decided to pursue illustration, I didn’t really know all the potential ways my artwork could be sold and used by other companies. Once I discovered the world of surface design, I felt like the possibilities were truly endless! We are lucky as illustrators, that our work has so many applications. I’m really looking forward to sharing with you some of the most exciting surface design work out there in hopes that it may inspire new dreams for your own work. If you have any comments or suggestions, I’d love to connect with you, so don’t be shy! Feel free to email, instagram or tweet me. Alright, enough about me, let’s dive into the wonderful world of surface design, shall we?

It’s rare, but really exciting, to find an artist who is as prolific as she is passionate about creating patterns. Enter Kendra Dandy, illustrator and pattern designer. Her instagram feed boasts colorful patterns featuring fruit, makeup and girls in fancy hairdos with fun shades. Her distinctive patterns have appeared on lipstick packaging for Anthropologie, beautiful silk scarves, and tote bags for Baba Souk. Any surface she can paint on, she likely has (including a french fry box!). The way she layers patterns together makes her work instantly recognizable and memorable. I can’t wait to see what she’ll do next!

Take a look at her portfolio, and be sure to follow her instagram for more juicy patterns!
