"Study nature [...]. It will never fail you."

- Frank Lloyd Wright

After three weeks focused on patterns, I decided to give it a try and start mixing my new swatch design agenda with my usual illustration style. And the result doesn't look bad.

There are plenty of options to combine both abstract and concrete textiles and papers, playing with similar colour palettes and different levels of complexity.

On a visual level, what I personally liked the most from this new experiment is the variety that the richness of details adds to symmetry. And with the first one in the left, inspired in the species of Fuente de Piedra Lagoon National Park, I refreshed what I learned in school trips about my homeland endemic species, which is always nice.

I like this natural parks theme... I may keep working on that.
