Connecticut Field Pumpkin Seed Packet Artwork
Andrea Donar of Asheville, North Carolina was selected to design the artwork for our Connecticut Field Pumpkin seed packet.
Why did you choose the medium you used for the packet design?
I chose Prismacolor markers and ink to do my designs because as of a few years ago, markers became my favorite medium for its smoothness and boldness. With markers I feel like I have complete control over what colors I’m using.
What is your favorite flower and why?
My favorite flower is the orchid, because it was one of my dear friend’s favorite flower and she passed away a few years ago. I’ve grown many orchids in her honor and even have one tattooed on my wrist.
Why were you excited about this project?
I was excited about this project because it gave me an opportunity to showcase my art with a new and local business. My dream is to become an illustrator/designer for books, movies, ads, etc., and this project gave me a taste of what it’s like to have my work displayed on a tangible object such as the seed packets. It’s very rewarding!
