Theodore Roethke


I made this illustration for the latest issue of Plants & Garden News, the newsletter for members of the Brooklyn Botanic Garden. Since getting the assignment I have been quite smitten with Roethke and have been carrying a small book of his poems with me almost everywhere I go. Today, for some reason, certain lines keep bubbling up to the surface and haunting me.

  1. Wow, thanks for the beautiful image and for introducing us to Roethke. I took a look at Root Cellar and got my inspiration for the day.
