Let’s get to the root

Added some roots and dandelions to this floral because it seemed too polished otherwise. Ever find that adding an “ugly” detail makes for a prettier picture?

My Sister the Botanist

My sister is taking a botany class this semester, and I drew this as a way to celebrate her pursuing what she loves. It has been really exciting to learn about various local plants from her hikes and field journals. She also loves alpacas, but apparently you can’t actually ride them in real life. Ah, the fantasy world of illustration. 🙂

Again playing around with a more simplistic character style here.

Pink Roses and Dr. Pepper

While we’re on the subject of “Favorite Things,” I ought to tell you that my favorite color is pink, hands-down. There’s something so unabashedly feminine about loving pink, and I embrace it in (almost) all of its shades and forms.

Last week, a sweet student of mine gave me a pink rose as a gift. I put it in a glass Dr. Pepper bottle in my kitchen windowsill and resolved to get a picture. Whenever someone gives me flowers, I like to do a little doodle of them as a way to preserve them. 🙂
