La Isla Bonita

Hi! I'm back from our honeymoon in Spain, too soon of course. We went to Barcelona and Mallorca, a beautiful island off the coast, and had an amazing time.

This is the beautiful town of Deia in Mallorca that
many artists, writers and musicians come to for inspiration.
Check out more of my Spain sketches on my Flickr page.

Illustrated Wedding Invites

So this is how our wedding invitations came out...our friend Ricky is an amazing graphic designer, and he type set and letter pressed them at The Arm in Brooklyn. (and took these 2 top photos...mine, not so great!)

Here's how the set looked. King and queen Love stamps, grey envelopes with attempted calligraphy, RSVP post card and invite. It took 2 stamps to mail just because the envelope is vertical! At least it made sense with the king and queen on each one....

Fancy Free and ABT

Hi! Haven't posted in a while due to the upcoming wedding and work, but I'm still drawing daily! Recently my fiance and I have been going to the ballet a lot, and he turned me on to the ABT logo contest....and I won! It's a rendering of Fancy Free, a ballet set in the 1940's about 3 sailors who fall for 2 women. Wooo! Check it out at American Ballet Theater.
