This is the illustration I made for last week's Colour Collective! The chosen colour was 'Viridian' which was perfect for the forest scene I wanted to create. I imagine this curious deer is quite happy to trek through the landscape on her own, encountering lots of magical plants and flowers.

1. A perennial aromatic Eurasian herb (Artemisia absinthium) in the composite family, naturalised in North America having pinnatifid, silvery, silky leaves and numerous nodding flower heads. Also called wormwood.
2. A green, liqueur having a bitter anise or liquorice flavour and a high alcohol content, prepared from absinthe and other herbs, prohibited in many countries when containing thujone because of its alleged toxicity.

Colour Collective started back up last week - yay! The chosen colour was one of Pantone's colours of the year 'Rose Quartz' so it felt very appropriate and I'm sure we will see 'Serenity' pop up at some point (although I did decide to include it in this piece anyway!).

I saw these cute little rabbit figurines on Pinterest some time ago, and they were described as 'totems' which I thought was really interesting. I really wanted to explore the idea some more through my own illustrations, and I'm thinking about doing a small series based on this idea. Would you be interested in seeing more?

So, after a Christmas break, Colour Collective is finally back this week! Last Friday, as a way of getting to know all of the illustrators who take part, the organisers decided that we should get involved in the Meet the Artist hashtag and it was really lovely to see the awesome pieces everyone came up with! It also highlighted just how many artists have joined Colour Collective lately - awesome!
