When I was at the shoot for this editorial, I couldn’t help but imagine how the model seemed to be an illustration brought to life. Between the hair, makeup, and styling, it was the epitome of style that I like to recreate in illustrated form. She embodied the perfect essence of vintage meets modern. Of course this time around, I’m working backwards… and taking her from real life to watercolor. See detail shots of this illustration here.

It’s incredible how much power a single red rose embodies. Then again, if you look at a rose closely you can see the power within it’s seemingly never ending layers of velvety petals. It’s true, lately I’m completely flower obsessed… but how could I not be?! Flowers are really one of the great wonders of the world!
One of my memories as a kid is walking down Berry Road (named for it’s never ending berry bushes!), where I grew up in Georgia, and seeing wild pink roses everywhere. I can’t imagine having grown up in an urban area. There were always so many quiet days in the South… days to just wander through fields, watch the neighbors horses, or just lay in the sun with my dogs. A simple life. A life where flowers were part of the everyday, especially the butterfly bushes.
Working on this pattern got me yearning to design wallpaper…
