Reinterperting Vintage Images

There's nothing as satisfying for me than taking a vintage image and reinterpreting it.

Most often the design ends up in repeat that can then be applied as surface art to fabric for quilts or apparel. Sometimes, though, it's just a great image that I'll save until I find a use for it.

This girl on the bike was from a children's learn-to-draw tracing book. I kept the drawing as loose as the original, and adding color and some pattern made her new again!
