process from my magnolias+magpies mural. I originally drew this because I missed my grandparents in Shanghai, and these birds remind me of where they live, and the time I have spent with them there.

In Asia, these magpies are associated with good fortune and joy in several cultures. It is even a symbol of Korean identity! Magnolias are long-lived flowering trees that are associated with perseverance, I like to think it is also because the ancient genus evolved before bees and were instead pollinated by beetles.

An early spring 💕 cutie 💕 here in the great PNW, I greatly enjoyed finding death camas blooming among edible blue camas earlier this month in the San Juans - talk about a killer combo💀they may have similar common names but all North American species of death camas aren’t even in the same genus as blue camas. Learn your Latin! Learn your indigenous names too! I learned the plant is called alapíšaš in Sahaptin, and nupqasaquⱡ in Ktunaxa. 🥰 Don’t let friends or your livestock eat things with the name “death” in them!• #illustration #botanicalart #deathcamas #procreate #toxicoscordionvenenosum ...
