Emerging Trend: Pen & Pencil Line

| Post by: in Emerging Trend

Pen and Pencil Line is an emerging trend which is simple and fun, with materials having a hand-drawn scribbled effect throughout. Crayon and felt pen marks are formed using etched, illustrative patterns leaving a hand-made feel overall. Patterns are blown up and re-shaped to fill whole items of clothing and furniture, giving an eye catching appearance especially using bright pastel pen marks. The contrast of  monochrome and dark charcoal lines gives a dramatic look to the trend.
