I was commissioned by Adobe's creative residency community fund to create new artwork - using the beta version of illustrator for iPad. It was really cool to be able to work completely freehand and draw straight on the artboard - and at the same time have all the illustrator features.

I decided to dive into the program and challenge myself to create a detailed repeat pattern 100% on the iPad. This pattern was inspired by my road trips to coastal Maine and to 1000 islands, while envisioning the possible end uses of the design: kids apparel and products, gift wrap, wall paper and more.
I'm really grateful to adobe who gave me complete creative freedom and allowed me to explore!
