Botanical Illustration And Monogram Design
We created this custom monogram and botanical illustration for a favorite client, Arthur Taussig, to be made into a wax seal and affixed to collages headed for exhibition. The collages feature beautiful vintage illustrations borrowed from the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s archives.
Since Arthur is anything but traditional, the design had to veer a little toward the weird and wacky in order to embrace his creative world. The greatest challenge was to create a design small enough to fit into a 1 inch diameter and still tell a story! The finished illustration features carnivorous flowers, blood-thirsty buds, and creepy vines closing in on a hungry caterpillar. We look forward to posting the finished collages and announcing dates for the exhibition. Our next project with Arthur will be an illustrated alien travel guide!
It isn’t every day an artist like Arthur comes along, he’s our most eclectic client. See more of Arthur’s work at arthurtaussig.com.
