Miles of Tiles

Jun 3


There are twelve new backgrounds available today. I don’t usually do such big updates, but by adding these latest images I’m hitting a milestone: 300 patterns. I can’t believe I’ve made this many. Admittedly some are pretty crap but I’m talking quantity today, people.

Anyway, here we go again. Click on an image below for the full repeat, or see all 300 here.

Many thanks to all the readers of this blog. I could not have made it this far without the encouragement and feedback I’ve received over the years.

I Dream in Pattern

Sep 22

I am still alive! And I’ve added ten new images.

I made this batch of backgrounds using a bunch of different mediums: design software, collage, acrylic, cheap watercolor and imported Venetian ink. When I was done painting, I scanned the paper towel that I used to sop up the extra paint, so now that’s a background too.
I will try to update more often!

I’ve made 200 of these things

May 2

I’ve added eight new patterns to the site, which brings me to a little milestone. There are now 200 patterns available for download! I can’t believe I’ve made 200 of these ridiculous things. The backgrounds page is taking an awfully long time to load nowadays.

For this batch of backgrounds I experimented a bit with watercolors. The watercolor look is pretty hard to duplicate using software, so I splurged on a $2 set and did it the old-fashioned way.
That’s all for now.
