Illustration Friday - "Hoard"

This is my first Illustration Friday offering since our BIG move to South Texas about a month ago. I can't tell you how good it feels to finally be almost set up and ready to rock out some great new work -- well at least attempt to :>


moleskine, pitt pen

I wasn't really sure what to draw for 'Hoard' and was about to pass this challenge by - until I started unpacking sketchbooks, plant & flower reference books and a HUGE envelope of pressed flowers.

My 'Hoard' offering' was right in front of me - I am a hoarder of everything flower-related. I'm also learning Spanish right now so after scanning this spread in (and desaturating it, it looks better in b&w I think) I added some text: "the pretty flowers - enchanting & beautiful"

Thanks for visiting and Happy Friday. Have a great weekend y'all!

You can see you love line, as do I. Even the 'frame' around your beautiful flowers is a treat to look at. Line, line, line forever! Congratulations on surviving your move.
