Floral Fashion Portrait-Sakura

I know I’ve been posting lots of flowers and hummingbirds lately but I couldn’t resist showing you guys this stunning illustration by Los Angeles based illustrator Sunny Gu. This one is part of a series created in 2011; and I seriously had such a hard time picking just one illustration because they are all so beautiful. As most of Gu’s illustrations, it is done in watercolor. The cherry blossoms here are used as a symbol for femininity, love, and nature renewal.

I discovered this artist on Instagram (you can follow me by clicking here); she has a very girly and colorful universe that takes inspiration from nature and fashion. She’s a young and up and coming illustrator, and I highly suggest you check out more of her art here. She also has an etsy store if you’re interested in buying some of her art. Stay tuned for more pretty things.
