Here is a new request...for hand painted "Dancing Shoes" buckets. Katie and Kevin are getting married this weekend. They wanted their guests to be able to kick off their uncomfortable heels and loafers and trade them in for flip flops, which will fill these three containers. The monogram is our original hand-lettered design, which also served as the wedding brand on invitations and menus.

Wedding maps (and sometimes commissioned just for fun or as gifts) are definitely projects to which we always look forward. We call them "illustrated narratives" and have a great time creating something uniquely personal to the couple/client. This map was part of a larger piece for a bride and groom who were wed last September on Block Island, Rhode Island. Research is always the first step when creating a map, followed by a detailed pencil sketch. This stage of the process gives clients the opportunity to see how the map will take shape, and to edit if necessary.
