Garden Party is a collection of charming sketches and quotes from artist Helen Dardik.
Dardik's pen-and-ink drawings are replicated from her sketchbooks and interspersed with quotes from classic novels such as Alice in Wonderland and The Secret Garden .
Dardik's illustrations of girl-fairies, flora, and fauna create a magical, dreamy world. Many of her characters are hybrid girl / plant creatures whose friends include a menagerie of cats, dogs, and other critters.
• Her illustrations are predominantly black-and-white, with a limited palette of accent colors.
• Aesthetic feels equal parts vintage Scandinavian modern folk art and Japanese Kawaii culture,
• Girl-powered and nature themed
This is a charming, girl-centric book that is perfect for all gift opportunities, whether it's for a graduation or Mother's Day or simply for yourself.
