John Zane Zappas (Print Media ’12) completed an artist residency with several other artists this summer at the California Botanic Garden.

Zappas created over 100 drawings during his residency, inspired by the way plants grew in relation to obstacles in their environment. He also created a special book of drawings and verses available free to visitors of the garden. Several of the drawings from the series are available to purchase from the California Botanic Garden shop.
