1. This is what happens when you roughly cut a letter-sized paper into quarters (because you’re trying not to be wasteful, but really you’re scared by such a large blank sheet of paper). Start with a perfectly square or rectangle sheet of paper, and use a paper cutter or straight edge. Then you can properly cut it via this tutorial. BUT- for my first go, it’s easy to see how this gets set up for a tiling pattern. I’m jazzed!

  3. Check out this great tutorial on making a tiled pattern from DesignSponge (pictured above).
I’ve had a Spoonflower gift certificate for a few years now. What’s been stopping me? I had no idea how to design a tiled pattern. And my only skill in illustration software is opening the application.
So, I finally got the gumption to look it all up, and here’s a simple tutorial on taking a design and making it tile-able. Oh, DesignSponge, I am not worthy.

Look what’s here, it’s comics!  Click and go read em.  From the news post:
Hello my friends!It’s been a while. I’m trying to stretch these comic making muscles again, so here are a load of sketchy sillies. In the past year, I’ve been doing some work in books and tv, as I’ve mentioned, some of it working out and some of it not. But I’m very excited to tell you that I just finished this book with Scholastic, which should be out next fall! It’s a lot of fun and I hope you will like it! I’m working on the sequel to the Hark A Vagrant book next with Drawn and Quarterly, so good news, you’ll be seeing comics more frequently! And I miss making them.

Finally a new Kate Beaton comic!! Space babes, ugly ducklings and vintage Upworthy. This is one of my favorite comic artists ever. Aaaw yissssss.
