Geek Chic Pixelpaper

Spoonflower, in partnership with Robert Kaufman Fabrics,¬†is holding its 2013 Fabric8 Contest this month on the theme of “Geek Chic.”

I’m pretty excited. I’ve been working on a collection of patterns called Pixelpaper for a while now – I’m pretty obsessed with pixelation and all the things that go along with it; computer icons, space invaders, 8bit simplification, digital glitches and the cliff effect…

Pixelpaper Geek Chic in Pale Yellow - 9000 things

It’s a little like an I Spy

I spy a keyboard, a hashtag, and pi, an invincible star, a frog, and a tie,
A really hard cube, a building block, two cameras, their chip, and one tiny lock.

One of these days I’ll post a tutorial on how to make repeating patterns like this. It’s super easy!¬†Deadline for contest is April 23rd. Check it out!

Instagram Hacks: #TylerForestHauser_freeforall

Instagram has spawned a super fun project medium called the #freeforall.

Instagrammers post a handful of their unused photos on the internets for downloading and you edit them and post them to IG with the appropriate hashtag. @tylerforesthauser started one of these a little while ago and his gorgeous photos make it way too easy to make pretty things. Here’s his website with downloads and instructions.

And here are my edits. (waaaaay too much fun…)

More on instagram.
