Tomorrow is the start of Matariki in New Zealand. Matariki is a cluster of stars, rising this time of the year, marking the Māori New Year. Traditionally this was a time for remembering the dead and celebrating new life.
Inspired by this I’ve used rough hand-drawn koru , or fern frond shapes in today’s design, symbolising new beginnings.
I would have loved to have spent longer on this, drawing it up digitally and adding colour, but of course there’s never enough time.
