Paul Rogers posted his entry to the Enlightened show last week. I thought I'd share my contribution to the show as well.
I'm very happy to be a part of this show, hosted by Jeff Smith and Al Quattrocchi at Tornado Design (great guys to work with). I'm looking forward to seeing the entries of other Drawgers, there's an incredible list of contributors to the show.
I've been keeping a digital sketchbook of sorts lately, so I thought about several options and decided to 'run' with this mechanical motif. Designing the lampshade meant wrapping around a 360 degree surface, so I thought a pattern would be a good idea. I created seven different characters, repeated in three rows. Here is one section of the pattern.
I call this piece 'electric pyjamas'. It was nice to let loose & really enjoyed its creation.

Hopefully you can make it out to the show. Check out the rest of the entries here or preorder as well.
