Oak Notes are here!!!

May 31, 2011

It’s taken 6 months longer than I anticipated to get these ready for the shop…too many decisions, I suppose…but Oak Notes are finally here!  8 folded notes and envelopes featuring 4 different Live Oak Tree pen & ink drawings.  Each packaged in an eco-friendly, kraft paper box and topped of with a chocolate-colored satin bow.

Congrats to the Happy Couple!  The Bride commissioned a custom pen & ink drawing of her parents’ home as a wedding gift for them, and it was a pure pleasure to draw!

I love drawing historic properties, and this Federal Style home on Lincoln Street is no exception.  Built in 1799 for William Barnard, it must have a million stories to tell.   In 1812, the house became the first Methodist parsonage in Savannah.  It also served as a Presbyterian manse as recently as the 1970’s.

I’m a little sad that the iron gate designed by Ivan Bailey didn’t make the drawing…

Splendid, no?

A wedding gift for dear friends, Val and Pat, these wedding invitations are tricky little monsters!

If you’ve been following this blog, you’ll notice that  the pattern is a combination of ink and bleach and acrylic swatches.  We aimed for rich jewel tones and a painterly style, and printed them with archival inks onto velvety fine art paper.

They are delicately held together with a teeny-tiny little brad, with the last page consisting of an RSVP postcard.

Here’s where I left off after an unfortunate run in with my x-acto last night…I’m using this as the perfect excuse to finally throw down on Martha’s blade, and to get out of washing dishes…66 left to assemble.
