These pressed leaf animations by the Sketching Backpacker beautifully combine natural aesthetics with hand-drawn illustrations. The collection includes a variety of drawings that evolve out of the pressed leaf, which acts as the work's center of inspiration. The sketches are reminiscent of the crafts that children undertake in their preschool years, scouring the nearby field for dandelions and random flowers to press into a bookmark for a mother's day gift.

Impressive is the artist's ability to transform the simplicity and beauty of a leaf into a variety of different objects; my personal favorite is the bicyclist whose scarf is depicted using the shape of the flattened foliage. Witty and creative, this collection of pressed leaf animations is a great addition to the artist's portfolio.
