San Francisco Botanical Garden flower collages

I created some new imagery for San Francisco Botanical Garden's annual Garden Feast, featured on their invitations and printed materials. Myself and art director, Valerie Shagday, have been able to collaborate on this project for the past two years. We start with a morning foraging hunt with an SFBG gardener to collect approved materials, then hustle back to the studio to start pushing petals. It's a weirdly exciting process --we can't be certain what direction the collage will go since our available ingredients depend on many factors, and we're working against the clock with organic material, but the client gives us lots of creative freedom and I'm always delighted with the results.
