Welcome to my continuing storytelling series, where I introduce various characters from my stationery series.
For a set of new Valentine’s Day notecards, I thought it would be more fun and interesting to do illustrations inspired by a nature theme instead of a graphic or traditional theme. I am excited to show you my new Valentine’s Day notecards today, which I drew using my new digital drawing tablet, after a few practice pencil sketches in my notebook.
Bleeding Hearts, from a collection of flower illustrations I’m starting to work on for release in 2013:
Bleeding hearts are a garden plant with arching sprays of pendent pink and white flowers in heart shapes. They thrive in cool, moist conditions among ferns and hostas. They are so delicate and beautiful in real life, so it was fun to try to capture that daintiness in my drawing practice and digital illustrations.
Love Birds Notecards, from a collection of bird illustrations I’m starting to work on for release in 2013:
Love birds are a small species of parrot, very social and affectionate. They get their name from the long periods of time they sit together. Aw, how sweet!
Notecards come in sets of 8, and are blank inside so you can personalize your greeting. They measure 5-1/4″ wide x 4-1/4″ tall. Both sets of notecards can be found in the Notecards section of my shop.
Stay tuned for more storytelling series from my field guide illustrations. Thanks for stopping by.
