These Allyson Mellberg Taylor illustrations are odd, but therein lies its intrigue.

Deeply inspired by vegetation, the artist weaves in flora elements that are unexpected and straight up surreal. They range from something simple like a woman with a lettuce leaf for hair holding a gargantuan caterpillar to something completely outrageous like a turnip/carrot humanoid interacting with a pair of bunnies. I don't know where Allyson Mellberg Taylor gets these psychedelic ideas, but no one can deny that the concepts behind the images are utterly alluring.

Making Allyson Mellberg Taylor's art extra special is that she often collaborates on pieces with her husband, Jeremy Seth Taylor. It's as though the pair are giving birth to strange and beautiful illustrations together.
