Organic Gardening Illustrated Cover

organic_gardening

I was recently asked to illustrate the Summer cover for the American magazine Organic Gardening. The theme for the cover was “Bees”…promoting the planting of flowers to attract and sustain bees that are dying off. I love to work in black silhouette when opportunity arises. For this commission I researched the Swiss/German art of “Scherenschnitte” and in particular the Czech artist, Erich Proksch (1910-2003).
