Wedding Invitation for Harley & Georgia ( Part I )

My first cousin Harley and his gorgeous sweet lovely bride (my future cousin-in law) Georgia commissioned me for their wedding invitation. They requested me about the details, elements, colors, etc. They showed me their sweet pics... they got engaged in Scotland. AAwww... Check their pics below.

After I researched their pics and samples of the motif colors, materials, more for a few days, I made my quick rough studies. So they were three different concepts, I asked them to choose. They chose No.1 for the first page and No.2 for the entourage page of their wedding invitation.


So I finished my illustration for the first page of their wedding invitation. I'm quite happy that they loved it!

Acrylic + Colored Pencil on Strathmore
15" X 22"


I'm still working on my 2nd illustration for the entourage page of their wedding invitation. Georgia kindly asked me to take photos of me, my studio and my art progress.

My old Acacia wood table. It looks like a Japanese table. I love it.


Work. Work. Work. And look at my art progress below. Tweet. Tweet.


And when I take a break, I love to carve my own rubber stamps. Hmmm, I need to finish carving my new classic alphabets and other unique creatures for my own stamp collection!



I love to make my paper stamping tags for my Kirkus products! Kirkus handcarved rubber stamps are available on Etsy. See you for my next blog entry about Wedding Invitation Part II!

That's awesome that they asked you to do the invitation, Mall, and it looks beautiful. I can't wait to see the entourage page (what's an entourage page?). I did the invitations for Matt and my wedding, it's fun to have something totally unique to give people.

Thanks for the peek at your studio!

What a sweet post this was *smiles* Harley and Georgia make a wonderful couple. You totally managed to capture their facial expressions in your painting. The composition/colours are sooo enchanting! It totally portrays a romantic moment shared between a couple. ♥ love that idea of taking photos while you are working... it's inspiring! :D :D
Oh, and we LOVE the stamps. That cat-owl is just the most adorable thing that we've seen. If J.K Rowling sees that, she might think about having a similar owl in the next Harry Potter movie :P ehehe...

((HUGS))
