Peel back this inky wrapper and what lies beneath is a beautifully tactile Kraftboard cover, delicately printed in black opaque. I fully support both pursuits; there's a time and a place for monochrome elitism, this is not it. The book is a collection of panoramic garden scenes, floral repeat patterns, imagined botanicals and fantastical foliage.
While more seasoned Secret Gardeners will hopefully loose themselves in the inky intracies and delicate details. The second print run has just reached our shores, so if you are waiting patiently for your book it should be with you shortly. Go on a ramble through a world of secret gardens created in beautifully detailed pen-and-ink illustrations a€“all waiting to be brought to life through colouring, but each also sheltering all kinds of tiny creatures just waiting to be found. Every piece I create starts life as a simple pencil sketch, evolving into a rambling pen and ink drawing usually spanning several sheets of paper. When you were creating the drawings for Secret Garden, how did you reference your subject matter, from books, out in the field, or memory?
My grandparents were both professional gardeners with the National Trust and I inherited their vast library of horticulture books. What inspired you to start the ‘Wonderbeasts’ project, and what are your feelings about having exceeded the funding goal by so much?
I love a bit of co-creation, it’s just inherently more fun and more challenging than sitting in the studio drawing by myself. I hope to make the best piece of work I’ve created to date ( I feel I owe it to my Kickstarter backers!). I’m a little anxious about timing, there’s a lot to do and not much time to do it in, but that’s an on-going battle which I’m sure I’ll overcome!
Also a little worried there may be some suggestions I’m not familiar with, there’s always someone who comes up with some obscure beast or extinct fish that I’ve never heard of.
Have you ever wished you could go back to your childhood to enjoy all those childish pleasures?
Drawing mostly black and white scenes, Johanna creates intricate pages just waiting to be brought to life with colour - by a grown-up!

Her first book, Secret Garden: An Inky Treasure Hunt and Colouring Book, was inspired by Scotland's Brodick Castle Gardens, where she often watched her grandfather work as the head gardener. The second book, Enchanted Forest: An Inky Treasure Hunt and Colouring Book, saw Johanna drawing inspiration from the woodlands surrounding her grandparents' house on the Isle of Arran. These two books have proven so popular that she is currently working on a third colouring in book. Johanna Basford invites us all to tumble down the rabbit hole and find ourselves in her inky black and white Wonderland. WeekendNotes will notify you of the best free community events, concerts, exhibitions, cinema, festivals, and markets in your town or city.

This interactive activity book takes you on a ramble through a secret garden created in beautifully detailed pen-and-ink illustrationsa€”all waiting to be brought to life through coloring, but each also sheltering all kinds of tiny creatures just waiting to be found.

Zolang het algemene foto's door mij gemaakt betreft; geen probleem, maar link wel even terug naar het betreffende artikel met als bron "More Please". These are amazing references for all forms of botany, particularly in the winter months when things struggle to grow!

I had a very rough page plan, but essentially I just stood at my desk, sketched in pencil, inked, then scanned to Photoshop.
They are a truly inspirational publishing house and make some of the most wonderful art and design books, so it was a huge honour that they wanted to work with me. Also lots of exercise (important if you are sitting at a desk all day) and cooking noodles in their infinite varieties. It features intricate black-and-white drawings of the flora and fauna that surrounds the illustrator’s home in rural Scotland. The illustrations appear more detailed and challenging than those in a children’s coloring book. Last year, we reported on the resurgence of summer camps aimed at adults, which include arts and crafts, color wars, and outdoor sports. In the UK, artists Richard Merritt and Millie Marotta nailed down top-10 spots on Amazon UK’s best-sellers list. Er zijn plaatjes die je in kunt kleuren, doolhoven om in te verdwalen, beestjes om te zoeken en patronen om af te maken. We zetten voorzichtig stapjes in een nieuwe richting; volgende week zal ik er meer over laten weten. My delicate hand inked designs intend to charm and delight, inviting you to peer closer and discover the hidden intricacies.
Instead I prefer to take different characteristics from lots of different plants, say a petal shape or a leaf pattern, then combine them to make an imagined botanical. It’s a wonderful feeling to know so many people have faith in you and want to be part of my little drawing project. Nu blog ik bijna iedere dag over lifestyle, design, lekker eten, relaties en het moederschap.
