I adore trees. I know, it’s not a surprise at all, but I do want to make that really clear.
With that on the record, I have an admission to make.
I do from time to time consider the ways in which I can make my beloved trees … marketable.
So, in one of those cold-blooded, “somewhere someone will find this adorable and buy it on everything” moments, I came up with the idea of drawing two trees next to each other, with crossing branches forming a heart.
I started the drawing and it was, indeed, adorkable. I sent a phone pic of it to my partner, who told me to stop there or it would be too much.
I didn’t listen and kept adding, putting in the little swirls that I love about my older tree doodles. I am now wondering … is it too much?
