Wedding table cards 

As in "will you MARRY me?" as in wedding proposal! I hope she says yes :) 
Let's all send my customer good vibes on the 14th.

Trying to play with a little more simplicity.
For a card. Maybe? Sure!
Ahh... I had been fighting going to yoga, and once I drew this, I knew I stayed in
so that I could get this illustration out of my system. Tada!

Kevin's Birthday Adventures

Thursday, March 08, 2012

Kevin's birthday wish was to have his closest friends compete in a variety of games & challenges, from relay races, a quiz bowl to a photo scavenger hunt. Last Saturday in the Silverlake meadow, his wish came true.
Activities included taking a picture of a stranger who had appeared to have low self-esteem but actually had a lot going for him/her, balancing a water balloon on one friend while the rest of the team carried him/her, and looooots of charades.
Claudia & John testing out the tank top method for carrying water balloons.
My favorite picture of the day. Matt & Tyler = bro love.

Oh update!! After posting, I remembered Germain took this picture of the game master & me. Tada!

Clink Tattoo. Say whaaaaaaat??!

Thursday, March 01, 2012

I'm so excited and flattered I had to share this:
Hi Genevieve, 

I wanted you to know that I absolutely ADORE this sketch. It reminds me so much of my eldest boy and my youngest girl. Some may see a boy/girl crush, but I see a little sister in sibling-love with her older brother. I love it so very much that I altered it a bit to make it look more sibling-esque and had it tattooed on my arm! I wanted to share this with you.
