Watercolor Floral Notecards

You may or may not know we also have a small retail area in our Manasquan studio, as well as an online store. Here are four of our many notecard designs. These original watercolor floral cards can be purchased either as a set of 8 (2 of each flower) or as 8 of the same design.

Alphabet Poster

Here is the Patterned Alphabet in its entirety. I began this project for fun in 2006 and gradually finished the series about 8 years later. This piece is available for purchase in our store in two poster sizes: 18" x 24" and 24" x 36."

Patterned alphabet complete!

 The last three letters to complete the Patterned Alphabet! The "Z" was the first letter I drew back in 2006.

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
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 U

The original "U" was brown. I recently played around with colors in Photoshop and really liked the pink and purple camouflage look.

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 for the Giants win was quite contagious. Honeycombs and grayed pastels.
