In february, I was so happy about the first signs of spring that I started to draw Flora, walking through the forest. Soon, there were animals gathering around her, such as foxes, squirrels, swallows, peacock butterflies, racoon, badger, hedgehog, rabbit, marten, falcon, rookie, dormouses, jaybird, magpie, woodpeckers, titmouses, robins, goldfinches, sparrows, chiffchaff, blackbirds, tree frog, bumble bees and a roe deer!
Flora will soon be featured in the brandnew sedbook by Illustratoren Organisation, the German illustrator’s association, as a one page teaser together with my Queen of Hearts from the 52 Aces Poker Deck and the curious fairytale girls.
Here you can see some detail views of Flora’s furry and feathery friends:
Furthermore, we’re planning to publish Flora as a series of art prints!
Appendix: Three days after finishing the illustration, we were celebrating spring on a forest meadow and saw at least half of the animals pictured here – including three curious deers coming real close!
