Our Wedding InvitationsOne of the really fun (but exhausting!) parts of planning our wedding was that I designed our invitations. It was a little bit of a challenge, since we wanted something classy, but fun & laid-back, and we wanted to incorporate the best elements of a good party, which to us are awesome music, delicious drinks, and beautiful surroundings. We were lucky enough to have all of those elements (plus great food!) at our wedding, so I'm really happy with the fact that the end result rang true to what our invitations promised our guests.
Of course while I designed the invites, I certainly didn't print them– that distinction goes to Soho Letterpress, recommended to me by my friends Jon & Matt Roscetti, who once worked there. They did an awesome job– and I was so excited to see my designs printed so beautifully.

My first post since becoming a wife!Well, I've tied the knot– and now I plan on posting a lot more, since I won't be consumed by wedding charts, binders, magazines and schematics anymore. Hope everyone had a great Halloween– to celebrate (late) I thought I'd do a drawing of two of my favorite characters from one of my favorite books by one of my favorite authors! (That's Merv Pumpkinhead & Matthew the raven from the Sandman by Neil Gaiman, naturally.)
