Rose garden calendar illustrations

Haveselskabet was publishing a book about roses, and I was asked to develop a set of illustrations to be used in a calendar featuring the seasons of the rose garden. In collaboration with the art director, I developed a colour palette, a layout and a library of illustrations for them to use in the final design of the book. I wanted the illustrations to have a hand-drawn look, so I decided to draw them by hand, before finalizing in Illustrator. All the plants are regular Danish garden plants, insects, weeds and flowers – and of course different kinds of roses.
