A Seasonal Study of an Imaginary Forest by Jon Ashcroft

Fall in Los Angeles doesn’t really seem to hit until early Novemeber, but every now and then you have to wear a hoodie and you remember it’s not always summer here. I’m actually looking forward to fall and winter and getting bundled up, and the illustration above by Jon Ashcroft is a suitable reminder that it’s gonna be getting cold soon. I love how vertical this is, for lack of a better word, and the colors are totally spot on and beautiful. I want a print of this Jon!

    Yeah, great colors (I mess that green here in phx). Nice work Jon. If prints are getting sent out, I want on that list.

    I love seeing things that make me think of fall because it is my favorite season…I love thinking of the smells of fall and I really like how the colors in this remind me of them. Even though I just have my a/c on, I kinda wanna go put on a hoodie too…

    Really nice, Jon. I especially like the guy hiding behind the tree in the third print!

    Consider it yours!

    I’m actually without the joy of seasons myself seeing as how I live in Phoenix Arizona. Well thats not completely true we have two seasons, Hot and Freakin Ridiculously Hot.

    Seriously rockin’ work, Doctor Ashcroft. I feel like you’ve been holding out on us, though. You can make it up by presenting me with a print, too!

    Wow, really pretty colors. (!)

    No seasons, so we have to draw our own. Awesome work Jon, add me to that print list as well.

    This has always been one of my favorites! I am thrilled to see that some of the rest of the design world gets to enjoy it too. I of course love the colors but love how big the trees are and how small the people are. I love how the more you look at it the more you see. I’ve been begging for a print since I saw it but if it takes it being posted on a sweet blog to get you to print it then I don’t care!
