The cabbage is one of my favourite vegetables because of the crinkles nature makes in its dense ball-of-yarn-like head and how expansive its outer leaves are — as if reaching out to hold hands with its fellow crops. Through illustration this harvest, I truly began to appreciate the way small lines and speckles could turn themselves into (an interpretation of) something most recognize. There’s a certain magic to that: an air that maybe the dots and lines of our lives — the morning rituals, the mundane of our days, the seeds we plant, and soil we sow — are all part of a bigger picture at play. I hope one day we’ll be lucky enough to see it.
This botanical illustration is a part of the ever growing harvest collection — a handful of fine art prints I created with the intention of cultivating a space that encourages stillness, slow growth, self-compassion, and hope. Like each illustration in the collection, this cabbage serves as a reminder to have grace with yourself as you plant your own seeds, grow your roots, and reap your well-earned harvests. The most bountiful gardens grow from the small of seeds — so during sproutless seasons, keep patiently tending to the unseen undergrounds: a time to harvest will come precisely when it’s meant to.
