I really like the hand-drawn repeat patterns by Julia Rothman. She’s drawn everyday things like cars and chairs and made them into really lovely patterns
Julia also has a really interesting blog on book illustration – Book By Its Cover – I’ve only just discovered it but it looks like it will become one of my regular reads. She also has a design agency with a brilliant website – Also – that looks to do really lovely work.
