Full disclosure: I did this at my job and it was made as a promotional item for Botanical Interests.
Most of these are essentially tracings of the gorgeous artwork that adorns Botanical Interests’ seed packets. The artwork is created by talented botanical artists including Donna Clement, Carolyn Crawford, Marjorie Leggitt, Peggy Turchette and Tracy Wager. So, I am not taking credit for the drawings. The only thing I can say is I converted all the art to outlines – some of it completely by hand, others using a Wacom tablet in Adobe Illustrator – and I did the compositions of the mandalas and the “Bountiful Tapestry” layout. “Bountiful Tapestry” does contain some of my own art in it where I connected all the various vegetable images with vines winding throughout the layout.
In any case, this was extremely fun for me to work on. Probably the most enjoyable part for me was working on the cover design where I got to “test” the coloring page by partially coloring the flowers for the photograph.
I love my job!
