Pattern-Frenzy With Julia Rothman

Brooklyn artist Julia Rothman can pump out patterns for a good portion of her artistic career, and that is an amazing thought. With colors that pop, the patterns seem suitable for anything from wallpapers and wrapping papers to desktop backgrounds. And that might sound like a lot, but that list is actually pretty short-sighted; Rothman has an “applications” section on her website that shows her patterns in action, and the possibilities are very, very plentiful. The patterns are at times dizzying, yes, but in a great way that captures all moods, much like greeting cards might (and greeting cards actually do happen to be one of the million uses, of course).
