Bespoke | Italian Destination

When you run away and get married in Italy trailing your entire family and group of friends with you, you might as well go big.  We created these invitations to reflect the amazing venue, complete with cypress trees, old masonry and yellow shutters.

...In Process - A Midsummers Nights Dream

We're working on creating an invitation suite for Angie of Absolutely Events  based on Shakespeare's A Midsummer Nights Dream.  Its one of my favorite pieces from Shakespeare (along with The 12th Night).  However, it lends itself to a few conundrums...this massive list of characters and elements, for example.  I sketched out all my pieces already (pics to come, of course) and I new I wanted to include trees, a fairly hallow, and .... something else.  I wanted to create some sort of pattern to include all the different characters, with vines, leaves, flowers, fairies, spider webs, etc.  I used the base idea of a chinoirsier or toile to blend all the elements together. 

Since I knew that would be the most difficult design, so thats where I started.  I first sketched it, then inked it in.  From there, I'll scan it into the computer and clean up any pen skips or mistakes, then print it out and add paint.
