Lucky Charms

Here’s a look at some illustrations I made for this month’s WILD magazine. The article was about plants and animals that have long been associated with good fortune in myths and legends. I especially enjoyed the Viking folklore that considered acorns lucky due to the Oak tree’s ability to survive lightening strikes.

This assignment was a nice warm up for all of the insect imagery I’ll soon be making for the summer book of the Math in Nature series. So stay tuned for some more creepy crawlers like bumblebees, grasshoppers, cicadas and hawkmoths.

And speaking of acorns, I came across this really beautiful craft involving acorn caps on Amy Friend’s blog During Quiet Time.Β A garland to bring luck and clear skies.
