opaque and vibrant . . .

I've been watercoloring again... for fun... treating it a bit like gouache. It comes out opaque and very vibrant:)

All of your work is so joyful!! These are inspiring paintings. Question for you: for your textile/surface design, do you use an Illustrator plug-in for textile design? If so, which? Anyone feel Artlandia is worth the high price? Thanks for answering if you have time, --anyone!

Thanks guys! Sorry for this recent gap in posting... so much to do... so little time to do it in...
Dear eyecontact to answer your question:
I don't use any plug-in for illustrator. I've never tried Artlandia. Wish I could be more helpful:)

Thank you for the reply! I'm an admirer of your work. Your style is brilliant, consistent and uplifting!
I'm new at Ai. I'm having trouble getting repeat patterns lined up exactly right. Any advice from pattern designers is welcome if someone has the time. Have a great week, everyone!

I'm wondering if the pattern that is shown on your Twitter logo is a fabric that you made? I saw it on a post earlier in teal as well. Could you tell me where to find that if it is fabric? Thanks!!
