I am not a Graphic Designer. I am not a Photographer. I am an Illustrator. But, well, I can find my way around Photoshop, and sometimes I play around with fonts... what I'm saying is, I dabble. :-)
Next week, we are coming up on our second anniversary. Two years of marriage have been really awesome, honestly. This is our wedding announcement--I must say, I really loved the idea, and people all seemed to love it as well. As a HUGE fan of Golden-Age illustrators who have done Post covers--take a look at the master copies I did both from Rockwell and Leyendecker--it really just worked.
So, since it worked so well for the announcement, of course we had to bring the concept back for the Thank-You cards...
I really liked the idea of continuing with this theme for other life events. I really, really wanted to make a Post cover pregnancy announcement, but... I never got around to it. I just couldn't think of an image I wanted to use for it, and, well.... life.
Ironically, I've made time to put together another one now that I have a little one keeping me awake all night and demanding food all day. Go figure ;-)
Though professionally I'm an Illustrator, I do a lot of other fun and interesting things in my life that I like to write about. This is where I'll put my posts about those things--recipes, projects, thoughts, and anything else going on in my life that is not specifically art related.
