Digital Goliath Beetle Illustration

I created this digital version of the goliath beetle on illustrator, just for a bit of fun. I reckon I'll experiment with colour (or prints?) to make it a little more interesting and maybe use it as part of a fabric print

Below are several sketches including fabric samples which I created (colours, shapes and textures all inspire by entomology)

Designing a Print

I decided to design my own 'print' for a project. I am always inspired by Issey Miyake, especially because he involves the wearer and allows them to wear a garment in different ways (e.g excess fabric which can be tied to create a different silhouette).

Here I decided to create a print which would encourage the wearer to be involved in the design process. To do this I would produce a print with dotted guide lines so that the wearer could choose to have a normal printed fabric, or cut along the lines which would produce an interactive print. It would also give the wearer the opportunity to cut certain areas and leave others, which would allow them to create a personal print and silhouette.

Here are three samples (already cut)
