Wedding Menu

I just completed 12 of these menu chalkboards for a wedding this weekend in Napa Valley. I thought this was a clever way to designate the tables (each board has a different table name), as well as providing a menu for the guests. The wedding is being coordinated by Traci at
Napa Valley Celebrations. It's so beautiful in Napa, wish I was attending!

Chalkboard Sign

This sign will be placed next to the guest book to encourage people to leave good wishes in the book for the bride and groom. The script is in white acrylic paint, the leaves in green gouache and the block letters are done with white uni-ball pen.

White Script Envelope Sample

I'm completing this job tonight for a client to pick up tomorrow. The typeface I'm mimicking is called Zaner. Generally you don't want lines crossing through other letters, but that's how the capitals are designed in this font. Envelope addressing can be tedious, but I'm really enjoying this one. The combination of the script and the white on the red is really nice!

Van Cleef and Arpels

I just completed a big job this week for an event Van Cleef and Arpels held at a private estate in Malibu. It was to launch a new line of one of a kind jewelry. I did place cards, seating cards and description cards for the jewelry. I was also hired to be on site for last minute calligraphy. I tried to trade my work for a pair of earrings, but they didn't go for it!

All put together with a bit of ribbon on the binder ring.

Flower Book Spread

I put the the pages together with the cover using a binder ring.

Flower Book Unassembled

These little 3 x 3 pages are going into a book I'm donating to the Society for Calligraphy. They are doing a silent auction at their 35th anniversary party.
