Behind the Scenes: Flow Magazine’s House-Plant Guide

April 3, 2017

Several months ago, the wonderful dreamers at Flow Magazine asked me if I’d be interested in illustrating plants for a special house plant guide they were putting together. Clearly, being the pretty plant-loving woman that I am, I accepted with glee. My editor, Alice, sent me a list of 15 plants in their latin names, and I promptly started gathering inspiration imagery. 

Here are some of my initial sketches of the plants, objects and latin nomenclature. These helped me get a sense of where I was headed down the road with the full color illustrations. See below for how they came together in the end. And in the meantime, stay tuned for images of the final house plant guide, coming soon. 

Happy sunny springtime, Friends!
