That feeling when you finish a big creative project and then a mild feeling of purposelessness sets in, so you distract yourself with mind-numbing work like sketching and cataloging leaves from field guides. Also there are no observable leaves on trees right now (except for three species, can you guess which ones?), so I wonder if I’ll actually remember any of this in the spring?
It's here! Ecoregions of Texas is hot off the risograph press and ready to ship. Exploring the twelve different ecological systems in Texas and featuring thirteen different botanical illustrations.

Thank you so much to everyone who has supported me through this project, whether you have chipped in on Patreon, picked up my work at Zine Fest Houston or Fort Worth Zine Fest, or just chatted plants with me over the past few months. I'm grateful for all of the many ways people have encouraged me to carve out time to do what I love and share it back with y'all.
I'm headed to Houston on Friday to pick up the final copies of 'Ecoregions of Texas' from a risograph printer that I've been working with, and debut the project at Zine Fest Houston on Saturday. So in celebration of Houston, here's one last preview of a spread from the zine, describing the Gulf Coast ecosystem and featuring a botanical illustration of a plant native to that area.
The zine features all twelve ecosystems of Texas and collects fourteen of my recent illustrations. You can pre-order copies on my website:http://www.owencurtsinger.com/…/ecoregions-of-texas-pre-ord…
Ecoregions of Texas, my new 32-page risographed zine exploring Texas’ different ecosystems via my botanical illustrations, is available for pre-order! Follow this link to be taken to my shop: http://www.owencurtsinger.com/new-products/ecoregions-of-texas-pre-order
VERY excited to announce a new zine that I’ll be debuting at Zine Fest Houston in a couple weeks: “Ecoregions of Texas,” a 32-page risographed zine collecting recent botanical illustrations of plants that represent each of Texas’ twelve distinct ecological regions.
