There are many layers of process to Mark Lovejoy’s work. Resins, oils, diluents, waxes, and drying agents are mixed and swirled to create thick gloopy textures which are then photographed. Photos are then tweaked and altered, resulting in these lush and colorful prints which you can find here. Wouldn’t these make amazing prints for apparel? The creases and folds would be an interesting intersection with the creases and folds of fabric.

Whether it’s sprucing up your home for the holidays or simply adding a little timeless cheer, polka dots might be just what the doctor ordered. Trading in the rigid structure of the perfect dot, these home additions are opting for the loose structure of the organic hand drawn element and the result is fun and playful!
