Flipping through my RSS feeds on Reeder (which grows in size by leaps and bounds when I have a busy weekend,) I came upon a beautiful set of images on Design Milk. They show some gorgeous pattern-making and object showcasing by Christopher Marley. I was especially struck by some of his work with beetles, creating patterns with their range of colors.
I love patterns created with actual objects, where you can at once enjoy the oject itself as well as a greater whole, and the play of color-work here is quite lovely. Be sure to click the link to enjoy some more photos of Marley's work. You can also check out his site here.
