Let me introduce a series of posts where I'll present some of the patterns I've been creating lately. They are all based on origami shapes and are intended as ideas for future screenprints. The boat is one of my favourites and I really enjoyed playing around with it. Here it is the original shape:

Then the boat starts swinging around... and creates patterns like these:
