"RATTUS NORVEGICUS" - new PaisleyPower design


My latest design was inspired by my favourite punk band The Stranglers when i was 12 years old in 1977. Rattus Norvegicus (latin for the common rat) was the title of their debut album. The band's logo was also a rat. I drew the entire design by hand and created the repeat in photoshop. I had the design digitally printed onto fabric. Soon afterwards I attended a lampshade-making course and a clutchbag-making course at The Cloth Clinic in Dedham, Essex. Our tutor for both workshops was the excellent Lynne Sharpe of The Make It Room. I know have several products available using my rat print in my Etsy shop
