Portraits from a recent editorial for L’Optimum.
Congratulations to Natasha Durley – her stunning landscape illustration ‘For The Love of Plants’ (above, and crops in the centre) has been shortlisted for the 2013 AOI Illustration Awards! We love the hand drawn textures and bright zingy colours she uses, and how her work has such a tropical vibe… if only we could dive in and go exploring.
“Is it possible to become friends with a butterfly?”
“It is if you first become a part of nature. You suppress your presence as a human being, stay very still, and convince yourself that you are a tree or grass or a flower”
- Haruki Murakami, 1Q84
