New projects and experiments. Trying to challenge myself creatively with a new endeavor (ok really it’s always been a hobby I’ve enjoyed but haven’t taken as seriously).

Springtime in LA

But it feels like summer!

The Plant Journal: Vol. 1

So I finally ordered The Plant Journal: Vol. 1, and got it in the mail a week or so ago from the great folks at Lucky’s in Vancouver.  I waited another week to open it so that I could document it when I did.  I’ve got to savor print like this, you know? It’s taken me several weeks more to post it up here on The Look See.  I know it’s probably the most overly documented plant periodical in the past decade, but can you blame me? I mean, it combines three of my greatest joys in life: plants, design, and literature.

Now I need Vol. 2 which is out now.

Sidenote: I’m convinced that I have a Staghorn-shaped void in my life.  Time to expand my horticultural horizons.

Another sidenote: this is also where I found Mr. Eichhorn’s beautiful collage work.
