This pen and ink illustration of Elaeocarpus macrocerus won a Highly Commended Award at this year's (2012) Margaret Flockton Award. The fruits of Elaeocarpus contain wonderful elaborate "endocarps," which enclose the seeds, making them a pleasure to draw. The flowers are also beautifully complex structures which are always a challenge to dissect and draw.
