A couple of healthy, young dinosaurs are hopping through their neighborhood, looking for something tender and sweet that would make a good breakfast. So many vines and flowers to choose from in their warm and tropical world.

I voted for your design.

So cool that you shared your creation process with us, I tend to forget that there are SO many other ways to do these designs! I started out with photos of watercolor paintings, and I would like to go back to that style occasionally. WOW that color is so sharp and clear on the new performance knit! It was a fantastic choice for your incredible, super - vibrant "Breakfast Time" design.
Well, thank you Patsijean, and art on fabric, and shelly, and georgeandgracie, and eronel, and kirpa and paula and EVERYONE. (We don't want to make an academy award speech here).
Even though these hungry dinos did not come in, in the top 10, I still consider them winners. Nothing loved by 229 people is ever a loser. The happenstance that the new performance knit swatch samples came out just as this contest started meant that it got proofed for free, just like it had come in, in those top ten.
Now it is time for me to find some breakfast. I think I will try looking in my kitchen rather than hopping around my back yard and looking for leaves.
It printed out beautifully! I love the detail you put into this.. it's really lovely. :-)
229 votes. I was one of them. I only voted for two and yours was the best.
Oh, it really printed beautifully! I love it!
I am just overwhelmed at all the love these two dinosaurs are getting. I just got back their test swatch in the new performance knit. The colors in that medium are very saturated and intense.
Here is what the real fabric looks like printed.

An intentional giggle at medieval unicorns? It got a grin out of me, anyway.
I really love all your work. This is no exception!
How gorgeous and effective, wonderful palette!
The primaeval world, with it's flourishing foliage, comes alive in this beautifully illustrated dinosaur design!
I just love your work! This is terrific!
I would like to say thank you also! This turned out beautiful. I always like to find out different ways people use to create. Wonderful colors and design!
Wow! Thanks for sharing your process, it's so interesting to read how other folks go about it. This design is just fabulous, I love it so much!
Ah, so lovely!
Not much time, really.
Last night I drew the dinosaurs on a blank white cardstock, in pencil, and their garden. I colored over the pencil lines with an olive Flair fiber tip marker. Then I erased all my pencil lines and colored the background with a dark blue-green brush tip watercolor marker.
Then I was tired, so I went to sleep.
When I woke up this morning I finished coloring the flowers and vines and drew the green and other lines on top of the watercolor pen solid colors.
The top lines are Sakara Jellyroll white and yellow gel pens. They blend with the watercolor markers, so the white pen on a blue background creates light blue. The yellow pen on the same background, creates green lines.
Finally I colored the dinosaurs themselves (in alcohol based markers, not water color). And I was done.
From blank paper, to the scan and computer upload was less than 12 hours, and I was sleeping most of that time.
So I would estimate there were 30 minutes drawing and 90 minutes coloring, spent on this design.
Incredible! I can't imagine how much time it must take you to create all of these amazing shapes; scrolls and dots and flowers and vines - just fantastic! The color palette makes it easy to imagine the wet and steamy tropical climate, and the rich botanical world in which these amazing giants used to trod the earth.
