annie - iris

when the florida flowers came out, i tried to think of something to do with each stamp. i was being pretty literal so i'm not impressed with the ideas, but they are fine for quick happy mail. i used zig markers and did the shading with a regular lead pencil. i took drawing 101, but didn't really spend any time learning how to do botanical illustration. the leaves don't go with the flowers....but, it's mail art....ephemeral....good enuf....
the actual address will be stacked in short lines on the right


  1. As the page loaded and without my glasses on, they looked like tulips, which makes the leaves OK ! Sort of...

  2. I think they're perfect! Love that concept......

  3. guess they are a hybrid - turis :-)
