Here are some illustrations I did for the nicely designed Australian Trunk book series. This issue of the series will be about blood, and you can see the previous book about hair here. With these pieces I was thinking about stigmata and menstruation and was looking at a lot of botanical illustrations as well as this beautiful and amazing Victorian blood book. After the time spent rendering the flowers, I somehow prefer the simplicity of the silhouettes...we'll have to wait and see which ones the publishers picked.
