This illustration was commissioned by the Orange Coast Magazine in California. They were covering local plant nurseries around Orange County and needed for the illustrations to show some of the various plant species found there. It needed also to look vibrant and modern – the two words that define LPS perfectly!
After a research on the plan varieties found in Southern California, several rough sketches have been created. After they were approved, each was recreated in pen and ink, rendered in Photoshop, and colored in gorgeous shades of magenta, turquoise, teal and cream. A sophisticated pattern was created of all the elements. And the result was proudly featured in this article on creating beautiful gardens in dry season.
