Llew Mejia: "Chinese" Zodiac Aster

This week's pattern is inspired by the Chinese Aster. To me it was an opportunity to get a little more ornamental, and what started as just a few shapes turned into adding a rabbit, and then a snake/dragon type of thing, and finally the Asters themselves. I guess in the end it turned out being more of a meld of Mexican, Norwegian and Chinese folk art styles all blended into one.

Most cultural pattern to date, so cultured. This was also the most monstrous of files because the repeat was so went so slow, it was asking for an execution Office Space style.

Hope you all are having a great week, enjoy!
