Wedding suite

August 10, 2014

Never before have I been, and probably never again will I be, asked to design a wedding invitation featuring the Millennium Falcon. The trick with these sci-fi-themed wedding pieces was to keep them classy-looking with a touch of whimsy. It was all thoroughly enjoyable, especially since I got to draw a map, one of my favorite things.

Calligraphy book: The Yellow Tractor

April 12, 2013

This calligraphy project displays an excerpt of a book written from the viewpoint of a Haitian boy. He is interested in the world outside Haiti, but he is also proud of his small town and wishes for it to be recognized in the world. I wanted to make a book that was colorful and intriguing, simple and poignant. The body text is an attempted imitation of European school handwriting, and I pasted maps to the backs of the pages before painting them.
