This project introduced students to making patterns for a course in Art Licensing. Students created one main piece and a coordinate following one of three available themes: Florals, Space, or Dogs & Cats. I chose Space.
For my series, so eloquently titled Gayliens, I investigated themes not usually seen in patterns, reaching for an adult audience without having the subject matter depicted as overtly disgusting or over-the-top humorous.
The main pattern shows figures having homoerotic encounters with different aliens with sexual motifs added in the background. It killed in our hallways at Watkins College of Art.
