The Fish Block Panels are like little windows into the sea—like looking at the ocean floor through the portholes of an elaborate, blue submarine. Each window tells a different tale…or tail!
This pattern is similar to Tossed Shells in colour palette and layout, but it is unique because of the use of coral and fish. The shading of the sand gives it a slightly rippled appearance—as is common in shallow water. The ripples, along with the positioning of the plants, create a subtle movement that is so appealing.
When creating designs using the sea floor as inspiration, horizontal stripes are natural and sensical, that’s why this pattern is refreshing and uplifting—perhaps it is the bubbles! The vertical seaweed is certainly reminiscent of kelp beds, which are naturally filled with a variety of sea life.
This stripe pattern is the Fish Border offset and repeated. There are some subtle but funny things happening within these lines.
Our fish border is more than just a border—it is a story of under water interaction! The coral gives this pattern a soft and appealing feel, but then the relationship between the goofy fish and sea creatures really makes this border unique!
Lynn has always loved drawing and painting funny fish. There is just something about them…perhaps it is their big eyes, big lips, or their small brains that make them so appealing for a cartoonist. With an endless array of species and colours to draw inspiration from, Lynn has come up with a large number of fun and flowing fish that, together with a few other creatures, make this under water world come to life in a weird and wonderful way.
