Given how popular these pattern-filled prints are, I thought it was about time I make another set of floral patterned typographical prints! I like to think of these as a slightly edgier version of the original “Southwest Floral” pattern (which I illustrated years ago): instead of pink flowers and sweet succulents, meet deep green cactii and fiery red blooms.
If you’re wondering how I choose the random phrases for my prints, they are (unintentionally) all television references. I liked the neutral nature of each of the phrases: not inspirational, but upbeat and maybe a little sarcastic when you know the original context. See The Walking Dead 4×09 (the chocolate pudding episode, for those in the know) for “I Win” and Community‘s original paintball episode for “This Isn’t Over.” (The original two prints have phrases from Jimmy Kimmel and Modern Family, and yes, I really really love TV.) Note for fellow TV-obsessives: anyone else ever think that when Jeff wakes up to find Greendale ravaged by paintball in the aforementioned episode, that must be how Rick feels when he wakes up and realizes the apocalypse happened while he was in a coma?
