Workshop: Textile Design & Networking

On April 24th, Rebekah Ginda and I will host our very first workshop. It is all about Textiledesign and Networking. And just in advance: the language at the workshop will be German ;)


What you can expect:
Together with other Creatives (and the two of us), you will create a Moodboard, draw some quick illustrations and then create your repeat pattern. With pen and paper. Yes! No Computer. And I think this is SO exciting to do. I am used to sit behind the Computer all day long, so this is going to be a great Challenge for me as well.
You will be able to ask us questions during the Q&A and we will share our story how each of us became an Illustrator/ Designer.
But this is not the end… you will carve your own stamp and print on fabric which you can take home. PLUS: the Goodie Bag which is filled with pretty stationery and a lot more.

Is this for me?
If you are an illustrator or someone who likes to draw and wants to know how repeat patterns are created: yes! This is for you. Everyone, beginners and advanced are welcome.
If you are usually working on the Computer and want to tra the traditional way… OR if you don't want or can use a Computer, but still want to do repeat patterns that look professionally.
If you want to connect with likeminded Creatives and us… you are at the right place.

As you know, I like Social Media a lot. So I will make sure to post a lot on Snapchat (byjohannafritz) during the day (maybe even create our own filter *yay*), post some of your Designs on Instagram, Facebook, the Blog, etc.
Both of use, Rebekah and I, will be around you all day long. Help you with the Designs and I am absolutely open to answer your Social Media questions as well.

We would love to meet you in Stuttgart, April 24th. There are only three tickets leftSo make sure to jump over to the Fritzi Flock fast and grab your Ticket.
Hugs, Johanna

Frankfurt Bookfair & my doodle

Today was an amazing day! Happiness is all around! I got to be in one of the most interesting events of all: the Frankfurt Bookfair or the world's largest bookfair!!! And not only that, I got to meet friends, clients and some of my wonderful talented doodlers!!! So grateful for them! and so happy to finally put a real face to their names (if you know what I mean)!

So here it is my today's doodle: BOOKS, and can you believe we are already in our doodle 87! Time is passing fast, right? Almost 3 months since this adventure started... without imagining all the good things that would come out of it, like... a new coloring book, new friends, so much fun on the way, and so much more.

Thank you all for our meetup today! It was great! And thank you to all who have joined me along the way! Remember you can join me whenever you want on my challenge, every doodler I meet on my way is a new reason for smiling, so much more :D

Cosmic Party is available as fabric & embroidery

I finally spotted my Cosmic Party collection in some online shops. And, hurray, the embroideries are online at Kunterbuntdesign as well. So this is why I'd love to share some more pictures from those wonderful design examples of my Cosmic Party today.

But first, let me thank you from the bottom of my heart. Each and every one of you who ordered (and will order ^^) the fabrics. It means so much to me and keeps me going to create more fabric Designs. 
And now, the design examples of the amazing Sasujo Design, Nähsprotte, Mädchenkram and Farbenmix who did real magic. I am so overwhelmed. Thanks again to each of you :*
All informations and design examples can also be found on my Cosmic Party page.

As mentioned, the fabric was produced by Swafing and exclusively presented at the fair h+h. And although it is already like three weeks ago (Gosh! Time runs fast!),I thought it would still to tell you a bit about my experience as a fabric Designer newbie ;)
I thought it would be nice to meet the other Swafing designers in real life. And it was a pleasure to meet (some) of them in person… well, Jolijou already was a longterm friend and I love her and her designs (*waves*).

Anyway, this is me (threee weeks ago I had no bangs yet ^^) with my Cosmic Party. Yay. Thanks, Swafing :*

And of course, myboshi also had a huge booth at the fair. Funny thing: just two booths away from Swafing. Which is why I had to say Hello for sure. Our children's/crochet book was such a fun product and the company is so nice to work with. I was warmly welcomed and they invited me to a drink at their amazing bar.

I am so happy that I went to the fair. I met lovely friends, people that I work with but haven't met and made new connections. And! This was the first time I was a whole night away from my Kids. The first time since three years totally on my own. And what shall I say? I slept the whole night without waking up. What a gift on top. Haha :)

And not to forget the wonderful cooperation with Kunterbuntdesign who created lovely Cosmic Party embroideries.

If you created something nice with my Designs: PLEASE! Leave a Link in the Comments or tag your work with #johannafritzillustration on Social Media so I can find you. I love to take a look at what you do.
Thanks guys :0*
