Mixing Botanical and Anatomical Art – Utilitarian Franchise Pillows and Graphics

Following up on my earlier post— these are some of the great original graphics that Tin prints on his canvas pillows and canvases. (available at his Etsy site)

botanical and anatomical graphics the heart grows plants from Utilitarian franchise via www.pithandvigor.comI have no explanation for my attraction to botanical art mixed with anatomical or skeletal drawings….but it has been a consistent obsession for some time now.   Whatever, the idea of mushrooms and ferns and lily of the valley growing out of a real heart is just appealing….as is an acorn tree coming out of a skull.  Am I alone in this, or do at least a few of you also find this art interesting and appealing too?

Hi, I'm Rochelle and for 18 years I have worked as a landscape designer, author/writer, and design teacher. I've designed residential and hospitality (for hotels, restaurants, and spas) gardens across the USA and in the UK, Europe and the Middle East. After many years of teaching garden design topics in person, I launched the PITH + VIGOR Boot Camp series in early 2018. Through my blog, social media, and online courses (Garden Design Bootcamp and Planting Design Boot Camp) I aim to help homeowners learn how to confidently design and create home gardens that reflect their own personal and unique style.
