Some time ago my cousin gave me lots and lots of useful things to be creative with such as paints, inks and fabrics. One of the carrier bags that was full of fabric had a lovely design of a turquoise peacock print.  As I grew up in the 70s my memory was refreshed with an image that I had forgotten.  I have no idea who created it but I decided to trace over the original design in Adobe illustrator as the bag was a little tatty. I am pretty much self taught using illustrator and it gave me the opportunity to practice using the pen tool.

The peacock design was the inspiration for greetings card designs I created for the latest Tigerprint competition for contemporary florals.
