State Bird and Flower Postcards 1

In 2022 I started a series of state bird and flower postcards inspired by vintage illustration. It's been really fun to research the species chosen by each state and WHY (Utah's state bird is the California gull! What???) To date I have 10 completed and have big plans for the series in 2023.

Melissa thank you for sharing this series here! I't so beautiful. I love the way you've treated the background and typography.
