Weird is good, I say. And this spring, we’re going full-tilt weird (at least botanically speaking). On April 19, we’re throwing open the doors on a brand new art exhibition that embodies the stranger side of plants. Through a partnership with the American Society of Botanical Artists, Weird, Wild, & Wonderful showcases the results of a challenge made to a global community of painters, illustrators, and more: look beyond the simple flower.
The result is both visceral and beautiful. Head through for more info on this bizarrely enticing exhibition. —MN

Quick li’l washy sketch of Dad - trying use up the muddy dregs of gouache from the last time instead of putting down new paint. Because, you know, it’s so hard to open a tube and squeeze.

The feeling of the light here is pretty amazing
I know it looks like lettuce on his head, but it’s supposed to be a bow. This took about 2 hours and was one of my last drawings in my head drawing class with Lucas Graciano at Watts Atelier. I felt like I learned alot about different ways to go about constructing the head through class and the online school. I’m developing an eye for shape design that I like as well when it comes to individual features, but I’m still striving to put it into practice. I feel improvement, and I think it’s visible as well.
