We’re heading back to Portland this weekend to start the West Coast leg of the book tour, and these drawings remind me of my summer there. I love the way Lucy Engelman’s watercolor illustrations feel like the last remnants of summer walks through the forest. Each one is like a tiny world trapped in glass. When my black thumb eventually creeps in and kills my summer terrariums, these illustrations are a great way to keep the feel of greenery going. You can check out more of Lucy’s illustrations online right here or shop her collection at Etsy here. xo, grace
*Lucy’s hybrid drawings (below) are beautiful, too.
