Mandragora radix by zsofiadome Mandragora radix by zsofiadome
Today I bring you a botanical illustration inspired art about mandrakes.
I really like special plants which connected with interesting superstitions and beliefs. According to the legend, when the mandrake root is dug up it screams and kills all who hear it.

Hi! Do you mind if I use this in a junk journal I am making as a gift for a friend? I will probably be filming a video of the finished journal and posting it on YouTube but it won't be monetized, and I will link your page in the description. ^^

Wow. Wonderful style. I love the earthy and vintage style. Great job with the differing characters. Lots of details for the eyes to wander.

You could do a whole book of such creatures. I'd buy it.

They look like ginseng, which, too has similar lore describing them as man-shape sentient plants that can move on its own.

I love your work! What is your design process like? For example do you start on the computer or with pen and paper and what programs do you use?
