“Fragole,” 5 x 5 inches, pen and ink, prints available in my shop

It’s strawberry time in this part of the world, so what a perfect time to draw the fruit! Here is a new piece for my natural patterns alphabet, you can see them all so far in a flickr set.

“Fragole” (‘frah-go-lay) is the Italian word for “strawberries” (singular is “fragola”). As I mentioned before, I think I will be sprinkling in some different Italian words, and there will probably end up being various sets within the series by the end (like an Italian set or a fruit set).

Ooh, black strawberries—what fun! I think I mostly make these pieces for selfish personal reasons—like the chance to draw black strawberries and fanciful borders. I figure, it’s not hurting anyone to indulge myself here! Have a happy day!
