This is amazing! ...and Handwritten?! It's perfection!
I wanted to tryout as a botanical illustrator...but when I found out that the artist spends 400+ hours on one illustration, I couldn't stay focused that long. : )))
Maybe I'll do one before the end of my life : )))

Was that his actual handwriting? Do we see anyone with handwriting like that these days? I remember when i was really young, I was taught cursive, but that stopped while I was still in school, they no longer teach it in schools, its a lost art :(
