Weddings are the coolest. They’re so close to dreams; it’s unlike anything else. All these people that you know and love from so many different stages of life all are joined together to just celebrate and dance while the rest of the world pauses for an evening. Magical stuff.
So, I am always excited when someone asks me to contribute something artistic to their wedding — even if it’s just a sketch or two. In backwards chronological order, here’s a few illustrations I had the privilege to create for some wonderful friends on their special days.
Justin & Jessica Neill — May 18, 2013.
These two awesome tech geeks just asked me to throw their names up on the vertical plasma at their warehouse venue, so I thought I’d have a little more fun with it. (Plus – This was an excuse to give my new Kuretake brush pen a whirl. Picked one up immediately after discovering Ryan Andrews’ stuff. You should read this comic of his.)
Jonathan & Lindsey Hays — June 8, 2012.
Terribly sorry to someone on ETSY. My sis, Linz, sent me a link and it was a basic, “Can you do this? But make it me and Jonathan?” So, I obliged. This modern style juxtaposed nicely with their rustic, outdoor wedding. And it suits their new place well I think.
Paul & Katie Tucker — August 6, 2011
Katie the crafting fiend built basically everything but the building and the people at her wedding and reception. Amazing stuff. She and Paul asked me to outline a basic tree for the intention of a fingerprint leaf guestbook to blossom as each guest said hello. And now it’s planted as a nice memento on their wall.
So yes, if you have any painting, drawing, illustration ideas for an upcoming wedding of yourself or a loved one, say hello! I would love to make you something for the very special occasion.
