I'm not saying the pattern is anywhere near the illustration genius of a Rockwell but as I was drawing it I thought of Rockwell and that made me smile.
This is an example of how I sometimes design a pattern. In this case there was no plan. No idea of where I was going. I had the car and was thinking about a safety type pattern. Then the teens popped into my head. That led to the kiss. Then the cop came knocking. It's just free association. It does not always lead to a great pattern but it's a fun way to be creative.
When you design patterns every day the ideas are by far the hardest part of the process. I have all kinds of tricks that I do to make an idea happen. Sometimes it works and sometimes it flops but It's always fun.
There probably won't be many people cut this pattern but sometimes I just have to let it go where it goes.
