"If you're going to San Francisco
Be sure to wear some flowers in your hair."
- San Francisco by Scott McKenzie

Flower motifs have been popular in artwork from time immemorial.

We're drawn to flowers because of their bright colors, their delicate beauty, and their transience - they don't last. "Hippie" and "Boho" styles are especially known for their use of flowers.

You can draw an intricate cartoon flower design. Follow the steps in this cartoon drawing tutorial, using circles and curved lines.

You will only need a pen, pencil, or marker and plenty of crayons or colored pencils with which to color your finished drawing.

What can you use this charming floral cartoon design for? Put it in a frame, send it as a card, or decorate your notebook. The choice is yours.

Extend curved lines from the center to indicate the pollen-bearing anthers. Draw a small oval at the end of each other. Beside the flower, extend two curved lines and allow them to meet at a point, forming a leaf.
