Fabric design and print

Working and re-working a set of drawings made a while ago into a fabric design – ‘British Wildlife‘.  The drawings are mask-like animal faces and I have used a set of five colours.  Having re-traced the drawings (20) with a 0.5 Pilot pen I scanned them (at 150 dpi) separately to a file, then opened Illustrator and used the ‘trace’ function on each scan in turn, to get a vector file with, in effect 20 layers.
