The next pattern designer I want to share with you is Samarra Khaja, and she's based out of New York. And this is kind of a critters pattern she designed. And the one thing I want to point out is, a lot of the examples I showed in my course, I trimmed the artwork. But I also had one movie where I showed you how you can mask your artwork. And if I go to key line view on this pattern tile. You can see that her actual artwork is masked into the tile shape.
So if you want to build this way, you can, it's still going to work when you use the pattern tool. So with this pattern tile established through masking her artwork, it still works perfectly well. As she flows her pattern design into the surface as you can see here. Now if we go inside the pattern tool, you can see that all she's done is she's snapped her exact boundings to right where the mask is on her pattern swatch.
So that's all you need to do if you don't want to trim your artwork, you want to keep it accessible for future use and other things. Then this is a way you can pull that off and create a great pattern like this, which is called Mexican Springtime. So it's a fun pattern. It's another good example of a limited color palette, but the shapes is what makes this pattern so interesting. And I think this would look great on a lounge shirt such as the ones you've seen in my course so far.
And it would be a great pattern for that usage, or any kind of textile fabric for that matter.
