And you thought you could go your entire lives without seeing a platypus in a fedora? And, you’re welcome.

Notice the tiny hand of a child from centuries past, reaching onto the page? Floral Symmetry. Amoenitates academicae (1749-69), Caroli Linnaei, Swedish botanist, physician and zoologist. Considered to be one of the fathers of modern ecology.
We can’t tell you much about Miroco Machiko apart from her being a very talented Japanese artist and illustrator. Nevertheless we just love her charming take on flora in these beautiful paintings. Her use of colour is just stunning and there’s even more delights on her website of a whole menagerie of whimsical animals to admire. Maybe she could design a range of prints based on these paintings, we’re sure they’d be snapped up.
