This illustration appears in today’s National Post on the cover of the Arts & Life section. The Month Ahead illustrations are accompanied by a calendar of the coming month’s events. I loved working in this large format and it was a lot of fun to come up with something that worked in a 6″ x 21″ size.
My ideas for this assignment centered mostly around gardening and flowers in bloom, but this one is more of a Mother’s Day image. I wanted to do a tribute to mothers, and to my mother.
