Growing Mushrooms

A book to help cultivate mushrooms is illustrated by watercolour artist Liam O'Farrell.

Illustrating 'Growing Mushrooms for Beginners' was an opportunity for Liam to learn about the varieties, from the Oyster mushroom right through to the Cordyceps killer fungus.

He explains, "I was given a list of the varieties I needed to illustrate and there was a brief outline about their natural habitat, and how to grow them yourself. I learned that for the best results you have to simulate that habitat. As I worked through my initial drawings and researched each variety, I discovered that there is a vast number of ways fungi can reproduce and some very ingenious ways of mimicking that process at home."
