Fall colors


October came and went so fast, I'm still trying to get in full autumn mood!
This illo sat there for a while and like every other piece that I drag around for too long, I can't quite decide if I'm pleased with it or not. I'll know in a couple of weeks... If you have any suggestions, as usual I'd be happy to hear them. (Click to enlarge, I can't figure how to upload a wider preview...)
This morning I used some of the elements to create patterns. Not sure what for, but it was fun and relaxing. I'd like to upload the birdies to Spoonflower and maybe use the fabric to cover journals, what do you say? Hope you're all having a great week!

Oh Gaia! It's beautiful, I love how you've opened up your illustration into the patterns. Each one is elegant, warm and inviting.

I'd love to get a print or trade!

Ma che meraviglia! L'illustrazione autunnale è terribilmente bella! Adoro la tua attenzione ai dettagli e adoro la tua palette! ^_____^ i pattern sono meravigliosi: quello con gli uccellini è il mio preferito.. i tuoi animaletti sono troppo tenerosi! Brava come sempre. Un grande abbraccio. :)
