illustratorkirsten: WOW! I’m blown away by everyone who’s liked and reblogged the photo of my pinecone work-in-progess! Thank you all very much! I’ve cleaned it up and scanned it, and this is the result! I may tweak it a little bit more; I haven’t decided yet. This is actually a part of my final project for a Botanical Illustration class. I’m less than a month away from finishing the Natural Science Illustration certificate program at the University of Washington, so the crunch is on!
