How intricate looks to a doodler

This week’s Illustration Friday topic is “Intricate”.  Running a business from home with three kids does not lend itself well to my first impression visions in my head of a detailed, complex piece of art. It would take me months to add in all the miniscule hidden treasures . However, what comes to mind first and foremost from my own available collection is this floral design I created last year…

I’ve always really liked organic lines, curves and movement. I love mixing solid spaces with fine lines and tiny details that aren’t always obvious at first glance. I love images that invite you to look again and again to discover something new.

I also really love those fun posters that are filled with teeny tiny details… the Where’s Waldo-esque sort of concept. They’re like mazes we get to explore instead of solve.

For me this floral design is about flowing lines and layers of color to create a moment… reminds me of strolling through the garden with something new to discover every time you visit.

I wish it were warm enough to sit outside and play in the mud today!


This design is available for purchase as prints and framed art or printed on a variety of specialty gifts, decor and t-shirts
