Gardening and plants of any kind are a huge passion of mine. For this project, to create print material for a fictitious museum exhibit, I had just recently discovered the beauty of air plants, cacti and succulents. So of course I figured out a way to incorporate both.

Growing Art

In the last few years there has been a resurgence of interest in these plant species and creating living artwork with them.

I wanted to use photography to highlight the beauty of these plants as well as create clear tutorials in the handbook. I enjoyed being able to select and arrange different plants for my photo shoot. Illustration was used to create field notes that would help museum goers identify popular plant species. I used a quick, loose style when drawing and painting these to create the feeling of something you would find in a sketchbook. The typography was kept simple to highlight the photography.
