Baskets

I have been remiss in my updates! About a month ago, I completed some pen & ink illustrations for a book on Native Californians. Initially, I was simply going to illustrate some Valley Oak leaves and acorns. The twin acorns will serve as a design element throughout the book. The leaves and acorns serve to illustrate an important food source for the people living in the northern Sacramento Valley.

Then my client asked if I could illustrate some baskets and other artifacts. I was thrilled to take on the additional work. It’s been awhile since I did any pen and ink work and I forgot how much I enjoy it! Here’s a look at a couple of the illustrations:
