SPDG member John Wylie of JWylie Designs has had a busy year working on several nature inspired collections.
The first collection, called MicroLife Textures, has been licensed to Robert Kaufman Fabrics and will be available August 2017. The collection comprises 36 fabrics divided into three color stories. The MicroLife Textures collection tapped into John's love of drawing and his background in science. He was influenced by microscopic views of nature and images of cell networks. To achieve this look he used pen, ink, and watercolor washes.
The second collection, called True North, has been licensed to Northcott Fabrics and is scheduled for release in October 2017. The True North collection was inspired by images of broken ice sheets, cracked frozen lakes, and ice crystals. A cool, blue palette was used throughout the collection.
