As a teen I must have been fascinated by 8’s – page upon page is filled with different variations of the number eight.
There are various options to draw this simple, but effective pattern. You can either draw a whole bunch of single 8’s in a row, or – that’s what I do – you draw three 8’s in one motion.
I tend to get faster and faster, the more I draw those 8’s. Slow down and make each stroke conscientious.
888 can be used in many ways. The pattern makes a great border, but it can also used to follow a string line. Add dimension by starting with big 8’s and make them smaller, further down the line. Colour can make this pattern stand out; not to mention a drop shadow. However, I don’t want to make this too easy for you – play around yourself and let me see the results! I just love feedback and comments!
