artist, nerd, cat lady
In an attempt to actually finally start being more active in sharing my art and design work, I thought I’d share some work.. and since it’s Valentine’s Day, why not share wedding invitations I designed.. for my own wedding?!
These were printed on kraft paper with two color letterpress (black and white). Our theme was rustic Irish and our colors were dark grey and dusty blue. The little paper confetti hearts (stamped from old French books.. ooh la la!) and dried lavender were actually a part of our wedding decor as well, I just happened to have some left over to decorate these photos with.
Remember that time I said I was going to blog more and share more of my creative work? And I never did?
Well this time, I’m here to keep the promise! Well, sort of. I’m at least going to give you a sneak peek into a piece I’ve been working on. It’s for a client, for work, so I cannot show you the full thing, but I thought I’d share an in progress photo of some hand-illustrated typography I was working on.
This is a new thing for me, illustration type this elaborate. In fact, the only time I’ve really done hand-drawn type before was in my Life of Pi poster, which required far less accuracy.
I have to say that I have enjoyed the challenge and creativity of illustration typography, however, and it’s great practice to finally start working on my wedding invitations! (8 months to go…)
So stay posted for that…
