Tortuga part dos

Finally able to revisit my little baby turtle photo and develop the "Tortuga" collection inspired by him/her and my other pictures from my Mexico trip last November.

First was that lovely rubbery patterned shell!  Other photos included rocks on the beach which were covered in beautiful barnacles, moss, and tiny black and white striped snail shells.  

After sketching, I designed the patterns in Ai with some layers of texture and a lively and saturated color palette that reminds me of Mexico.
