Pencil Party sketchbook drawings

Here’s a peek into my sketchbook to see what the initial sketches for our Pencil Party kickstarter collection look like. Our first idea was to get some notebooks made up featuring a load of characters larking about with stationery. We liked the little drawings so much we thought they’d look great as a pattern for printing on fabric.

Not all of the characters made it on to the final pattern – we decided to keep it simple, avoiding complicated stuff like pencil sharpeners and staplers! I love sketching out ideas loosely with a mechanical pencil before refining the lines. I scanned the sketches in to our computer and traced over the lines so they’d be nice and bold, solid enough to work as a screen print.

Here are the characters cleaned up and arranged for exposing on the silkscreen.

And this is what the characters look like printed on fabric! The kickstarter features dungarees, trousers, jackets, T-shirts, sweatshirts and more!

Support our kickstarter now, it ends on midnight, 30th October!
