for commissioned botanical illustrations.
This would be of interest to botanists wishing to commission illustrations
and to other illustrators interested in my fees or business procedure.
For teachers: I have posted
a PDF for teachers to use, illustrating different types of inflorescences,
or flowering stalks. And for those learning about botanical art,
I have posted a botanical
art annotated bibliography (first draft).
