Bookified Flowers sketches by RetSamys Bookified Flowers sketches by RetSamys

I'm in the process of vectorising this. Except for the one on the bottom left, I'll just retrace the book, not the plant.

This is a commission, kind of... people tend to give me chocolate. Despite the usual Creative Commons license, these are all of the finished sketches for a logo of a blog about environmental libraries. As you can see, there was a favourite design and the one on the bottom right is the one they're going with.
And if there's one thing I like to get paid for, it's drawing books.

This is awesome! I swear you're getting better and better at drawing, so good on ya. :D
So ... this is a commission paid in chocolate?

Thanks. The process was different, because I had feedback after each one, so there was more concept and structure behind these.

I mean, it's for a friend. It's the sort of agreement you reach without really defining methods of payment. And I've gotten chocolate. Not necessarily as a payment. Who knows, maybe I'll get more?

Ah, ok. I designed a label for a friend's homebrew once and got two bottles of mead in it. :D Though that was agreed upon.

I mean, if it's for an edible product, that would be my first condition. Can't eat a blog, sadly.
