Autumn


One of the seasons I like so much is autumn. I love to go for a walk, collect leaves and bring them home to draw them. Some years ago, in October 2005, I tried to find 31 different trees and drew 31 leaves, day after day. I tried to identify every tree, so I could write down the scientific name.
During that task, I learned a lot about the trees in my neighbourhood and about trees in general...

That's such a lovely illustration! I like the typeface too, the two together look great.

Lovely leaves. Quite an interesting challenge you presented to yourself. An interesting way to come to know your neighborhood.
