A Marriage Wish

Lately I have been making time again for personal lettering projects. My invitation studio has a large bridal clientele, and I guess this piece was a result of beginning this year's wedding season. The sentiment seemed sweet for newlyweds and even for those who have been married a long time.

The Letter V/Illustration Friday~RETURN



This post marks my return to three things:

1. This blog after three years with no new posts
2. Illustration Friday after almost four years
and
3. The next letter in my patterned letter series after four years. Hopefully the last two letters of the alphabet do not take another 4 years to complete.

Watercolor pencils, colored pencils, and Micron Pens

A Parody


This client asked if I could do a Save the Date illustration using her and her fiancee's favorite painting "Boy and Girl Gazing at the Moon" by Norman Rockwell, but replacing the dog in the painting with their own dog, Quigley. I was happy to oblige. Digital.

Key Largo


This painting was commissioned for a wedding that took place last weekend in Key Largo. It was based on vintage travel poster art, and was tailored right down to the bride's dress. This was the actual wedding site, and the moon really was full that night. The original piece was 11" x 17".
Watercolor and gouache.

Illustration Friday ~ SAVE


I just completed this Save the Date map for an October wedding. Sandy Hook is at the northeasternmost corner of New Jersey, and the wedding site overlooks New York City. A lovely place to get married. Micron pens and watercolor pencils.

The Letter T


I'm closing in on the end of the alphabet. This May will mark two years since I began this project. Here is a stained glass "T"...a little early Spring.

The Letter S


This will forever be my Super Bowl (XLII) "S" as I worked on most of it during the now historic game. I'm not much of a football fan, but living so close to New York, the excitement was quite contagious. Honeycombs and grayed pastels.

This is my first time participating in Illustration Friday in 8 months, and my first original illustration for the challenge in 10 months. It feels good to be back! I had a lot of fun drawing this last night with Microns, Sharpies, Prismacolors, etc.

Illustration Friday ~ GREEN


An unfinished watercolor...actually, I kind of liked how the white space looked, so I doubt I'll finish painting this one. This is part of the Wilmington campus of the University of Delaware. The land was originally part of many DuPont family owned farms.

I'm not sure which one of these people is going to snap first, but it looks like they're both close to losing it. Part of Berlitz Publishing's "Hide This Spanish/French/Italian Book" series. Adobe Illustrator.

The Letter I and Illustration Friday ~ I SPY


I hope it's not too much of a stretch to double another letter posting with this week's Illustration Friday challenge, "I Spy." This pattern is based on traditional American quilt blocks.

Colored pencils.
