A few of my favorite studio buddies (:
Something I’ve often said about my work is “If it doesn’t have a face on it, I’m not interested in drawing it.” I love characters and the stories they tell.
I’ve always been attracted to traditional botanical illustrations, so I recently decided to take on a series of my own botanical illustrations, inspired by vintage scientific plates of beautifully rendered plants and fruits with Latin names in script, but also, of course, with faces.
These tiny paintings were all originally done as studies for the larger pieces I am working on, but I came to like them all as they were, as finished pieces. So I decided it would be cool to put them up for sale on Etsy - tiny, affordable, original fruity art! (:
Each of these is up for grabs at http://oopisnein.etsy.com
