#7 Fabric Design


This was the first photograph I ever took with my own SLR camera, of a roll of mangled chain link netting. Since then, this chain link pattern has always appealed to me. I like how at a glance it appears to be a grid of diagonal wires, but is really rows of linked zig-zags. For a long time I've had this thought in my head of a crazy hairstyle- a narrow band of hair woven like chain link, with the rest shaved off or artfully tied out of the way. Obviously I haven't become a creative hair stylist, but when the latest Monthly Painters' Challenge topic was announced as creating a fabric design, I realised that if I couldn't hack at someone's hair in the real world I could at least draw my idea.
