Lilla Rogers’ MATS Bootcamp March assignment

Hello friends! Although March was definitely a very busy month, 
I did found some time for my Lilla Rogers Bootcamp assignment.
Here is what I created for the Jello pattern topic!
It was a hard -much harder than I though it would be- but yet a fun assignment to do. 
I really love patterns and although I want to ad some to my portfolio I had no time to create any. 
So this was a great opportunity to do some new fun personal work.

The original inked illustration I made. From hand drawn to vector!
