Textile Designer: Cathy Hunt Featured on Pattern Observer

I am very excited to be featured on the Pattern Observer blog, where I share a few snippets of what inspired me on my last three collections. 
I am often asked where I get my inspiration for my work. It seems like the answer is different for each collection. But three things I always keep in mind:

• What product or category is in mind?
• Who will be buying it (target audience)?
• How can I make it unique and marketable?

Pattern Observer offers wonderful workshops and courses through their online community, The Textile Lab, and I highly recommend them to textile and surface print designers of all levels.

Rockin' Wardrobe at Rock Hall

Jefferson Airplane Jack Casady's Coat
 Every time I go to The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum I notice something new. I always check out the clothing, the outfits worn for appearances. This visit was no different, but I was really digging the patterns, so timeless. Here are a few standouts. I bet Al Green really rocked those pants. ; )
Janis Joplin
