The Flowers by Carliihde The Flowers by Carliihde
A quick drawing I did while I was at work at the hospital. I used to draw these plant spirits all the time when I was young (I'll see if I can find some of the old drawings) I think the human body is so gorgeous.
Done with blue ballpoint pen

SOrry for the lack of submissions lately guys. I've been busy in things other than art (I wish I wasn't)

"The Flowers"
Regina Spektor

The flowers you gave me are rotting and still I refuse to throw them away.
Some of the bulbs never opened quite fully
They might so i'm waiting and staying awake.
Things I have loved i'm allowed to keep
I'll never know if I go to sleep.
The papers around me are piling and twisting regina the paper back mummy
what then.
I'm taking the knife to the books that I own and chopping and chopping and boiling soup from stone.
Things I have loved i'm allowed to keep.
I'll never know if I go to sleep.

This reminds me of a character I designed. I hope you don't find that offensive. ^^; Yours is far more lovely and her flower hair looks more realistic. I failed on mine. :laughing:
