We have an incredible community over at Adobe Live UK. And when Adobe said they were taking a (well deserved) break for two weeks, our guys in the community decided to do something themselves.

Setting up a challenge to keep us all busy through July, by creating 5 things that say summer to us. A board of prompts was contributed to by some of the members of the community, or you could choose your own things to create. And when I say 'create', this has been illustrations, music, photography, composites, patterns...interesting creations happening at the time of writing.

Knowing that I don't have a lot of time ahead I need to get mine completed. So using the prompts of:
flip flops
picnic blanket
flowers in bloom
deck chair
tall cold drink
beaches (kind of) and 
ice cream

I hadn't intended to use so just happened.

I had always intended to create a repeat pattern, but initially thought it would be of just the items. Once I started drawing the seagulls though, they brought their own character!

Thanks for looking. If you want to see more of my art you can follow me on instagram

Thank you Shawn Kosel and Gareth Hanks for putting this together for our community x
