She must also be happy with the purple paisley design because all of the mugs she has bought are printed with the popular design, which has crying doves, kiss lips, tambourines, guitars, sunglasses, and lots of purple raindrops. These graphic motifs represent songs by Prince, such as When Doves Cry, Kiss, and Purple Rain.

I originally drew the design by hand on paper and then finished the design using Photoshop on my laptop. I have made several versions in different colors. In the video, you can see the blue versions and the grey versions. The design has been printed on cotton squares, which are test swatches. TV presenter and designer Kathryn Rayward watched the video online and commented, “These are beautiful Mr Paisley💙💙💙💙💙💙💙”. Kathryn presented “60 Minute Makeover“, which is a British daytime home interior design television programme broadcast on ITV.

Recently, Jeannie in Cheshire UK bought 6 rolls of wallpaper. The purple paisley fabric was commissioned by wax sculptor Tony Webb for the linings of the jackets of 4 life-size wax figures of the music legend Prince Rogers Nelson.

Happy Client!

It was great to have finished 9 assignments for my client, the illustrator Jennifer Orkin Lewis (August Wren) on March, 26th 2021. She emailed to say “They all look fantastic, Thanks Pat!”. Here are 3 of the original paintings of Jennifer’s that I had to adapt into half-drop repeating patterns. Hopefully, I can show you the finished patterns when the fabrics and products are launched. Jennifer created the paintings recently for an online “Aquarius Zodiac” art challenge.

Here is Jennifer’s painting called “Mystic Eyes”. In the digital file that she sent me there was an additional layer that was a handpainted background layer. First I made a half-drop repeat pattern with the eye, flower and plants motifs. Then I made a separate repeat area with the painted background. Then I made the two repeats areas the same size and dragged the background layer across to the Photoshop file that had the eye motifs.

Here is a painting by Jennifer called “Mystical Symbols”. It has wonderful blue tones. I particularly like the motif of the hand with henna decoration holding the flower. I also like the snake and magic brew pot. All of these motifs are fun to work with. I rearrange them so that they form a repeating pattern that is pleasing to the viewer.

“Aquarius” is another painting by Jennifer that she asked me to duplicate and arrange to form a repeating pattern. This was quite a difficult task because she wanted the mermaids to face in different directions. Luckily Jennifer sent me a digital Photoshop file where all the different motifs in the design were on separate layers. This gave me lots of flexibility to move the motifs around and eventually make a repeating pattern that looked natural and harmonious. Jennifer was very pleased with the finished design. She said ““My client loves them and especially Aquarius!”

If you are an artist or illustrator and would like your artwork adapted into repeating patterns, please get in touch with me. The repeating patterns can be used for a variety of commercial uses, including fabrics, wallpapers, stationery, and homeware items.

Tiny Version of the Paisley Prince Songbook fabric

Some yards of the tiny version of the Paisley Prince Songbook fabric arrived at Paisley Power studio in Essex from the printing company. Kimberly in Buckinghamshire ordered 1 yard, so I sent it to her. It will be interesting to see what she makes with the popular Prince-themed fabric. Previous customers have made beautiful clothing, home decor items, fashion accessories, and pet accessories.

Gail in Edinburgh saw my Paisley Prince Songbook fabric on Instagram and commented “it would be gorgeous as a mask. I think I definitely need to be getting some.” I suggested that I could send her a sample so she could see it in real life. She replied, “fantastic! Thank you, I could have some real fun creating with your fabrics!”

I sent Gail a photo of the fabric and she replied, “Hey Pat, could you possibly send me a sample of the tiny version? I honestly love all your paisleys that I’ve seen! 😊”. I agreed to send her the sample. She replied, “Awesome thank you, I’m excited to see it!”

Unfortunately, I didn’t have a small sample of the tiny version of the Paisley Prince Songbook fabric, so I sent her an actual size photo of the tiny version and I sent her a sample of the very small version.

On April 2nd she received the package and sent me a message. She wrote, “Hey Pat, I received my sample today and it does not disappoint! 😍 This is a very large sample so I will make myself a fabulous mask 😷 👏 and get an order in for the tiny version. Thank you so much, it’s stunning 😊 Gail”.

I’m so glad that Gail was happy with the sample and that she will be placing an order for the tiny version of the Paisley Prince Songbook fabric.

Here is a video of the Paisley Prince Songbook fabric. The song on the video is “Purple Rain” – A Tribute to Prince (Full Song Instrumental) by Jack Thammarat. Jack comments on his Youtube video post “My solo on this version is based on the melody of the original song. Hope you like it”. I decided to add Jack’s version of Purple Rain to my video because the design printed on the fabric is a celebration of the music of Prince. There are lots of purple raindrops in the designs, which represent the Prince anthem “Purple Rain”.
