Aryabhata Likes the New Rug

Aryabhata seems to like the new basement rug. He’s actually just yawning here, but it looks like he’s fiercely warning you off his rug. 🙂

I’m thinking about scale in pattern design. I want to use the dragon from yesterday’s drawing session to create a pattern something like this one. On the one hand, it bothers me a little that the elements here are so out of scale — flowers as tall as trees, different animals all the same size that wouldn’t be in real life.

On the other hand, it does make for a pleasing composition, so is it really important that it’s not that true to life? (I mean, I’m working with a dragon, so ‘true to life’ is only semi-useful as a concept anyway….)
