Academy Awards

For several years now I've had the opportunity to work with Jessica Latham, the fabulous event manager at Vanity Fair. This year once again I calligraphed seating envelopes and place cards for their Academy Awards party. The place cards are actually booklets that contain the night's menu as well as all the nominees for the year. I had the pleasure of meeting Joan Allen who photographed the event. Joan provided me with the photos you see here. You can't see the calligraphy very well in the first photo, but I thought it was such a nice photo, I had to show you!

New Year's Wedding

I really like how this invitation came out! Designed by Sugar Paper , I think it has just the right amount of playfulness and sparkle to set the mood for a Year's Eve wedding celebration. The foil stamped dots remind me of confetti. I was excited to have the opportunity to do a new, more contemporary variation of copperplate calligraphy.
