Midnight traje de Crepe Myrtle
Photography and illustration are combined to honour the wonderful crepe myrtle. The petals are like the layers of a Flamenco dancers dress ('Traje de Flamenco'). The crepe myrtle is both strong and delicate. Hope you love it as much as I do. Kukileaf designs are inspired by and created from a love of the natural world. Designs usually commence with photography particularly of plants. The shapes, patterns and textures captured are utilised in a variety of ways to create the final image. The image may go through multiple rounds of sketches and digital manipulation prior to final production. Despite the variety of end results produced the process is similar for all works.
