From the Publisher
"Drip Dot Swirl" explodes with pattern. It's unique, and it jump starts the imagination. Take the fast train from Boringville, and enter the fascinating world of interlocked embellishments.
Illustrative designer and author Von Glitschka is nationally recognized for his art and his passion to educate designers. As with his previous work, "Crumble Crackle Burn," Glitschka uses "Drip Dot Swirl" to share some of his design mojo and to provide creatives and hobbyists a simple means to use high-quality art resources in their own work.
From the Author
I've spent over a year creating all these patterns. I think you'll find them highly diverse, very customizable and easy to use in your own creative projects.
As a bonus anyone who pre-orders or orders "Drip Dot Swirl" once it is released will get an additional set of fifteen patterns for free. Just email me a copy of your receipt at: email@example.com (Please blur out any sensitive information)
I will email you a link to download the bonus set once the book is officially release in 2009. You'll be able to see the bonus set patterns though immediate when I confirm receiving your email for the bonus set.

This book is an essential "must-have" addition to every graphic designer or illustrator's personal library.
Featured Artist works are spaced throughout, taking the pattern and applying it to their own style and methodology.
A DVD of each pattern is provided, but make sure to email Von a copy of your receipt to get access to a few bonus downloads as well. Head out to vonsterbooks.com for details.
Including them as Adobe Illustrator files on the DVD makes them very easy to scale, re-color or modify anyway you like for your own design projects, most professionals will have the Adobe Creative Suite so it's not a problem, if you don't have Illustrator you may be out of luck.
I was really hoping Von would explain his design process, throw out some tips and tricks on how to design repeating patterns.
You have heard the old saying, Give a man a fish and feed him for the day, teach a man to fish and feed him for life. Well Von gives us a boat load of wonderful patterns, but no clue on how he came up with them. You will have to figure that out yourself by taking apart the Illustrator files.
I loved the book and that was my only complaint.
