I’m Baaaaaaaaack!!!!!!

October 21, 2009

Whew!  The past month (or year really) has been quite the whirlwind.  In case you didn’t hear, Nick and I finally tied the knot on our 10 year anniversary this year!  It was a magical experience, and it still feels so surreal.  We had so many helping hands and creative minds that made this all come together, and I want to take a few blog entries to not only get you up to speed, but to thank all of those folks that contributed to our special day.

In studio news, things are starting to pick up for the Holidays.  Commissions are booking fast…so if you’d like a custom Pen & Ink or Pet Portrait this year, be sure to get your name on the list pronto!

I’m also working on some new Savannah Prints to debut in time for Christmas, so if you get bored with the wedding run-down, come back in a week or so, and I’m all business…promise!

that on this early Friday morning, we are nearing (among other events) Valentine’s Day! Before my schedule heats up, be sure to get your custom pen & ink drawings commissioned.  I mean what could be sweeter than an elegant sketch of your love nest?  Or surprise your sweetie with a sketch of their childhood home!  All I need are the best photos you can find…(if you’re local to Savannah, I’ll gladly take them for you)  Oh and if you get your order in quick, there will still be time for my friends at Turtle Creek to print your custom drawing onto beautiful Crane Stationery! Skip on over to The Ink Lab for more information.

Oh and speaking of Turtle Creek…I’ve got their very own custom ink in the works…here’s the rough pencil sketch…

Wishing you all a super-fab Friday!

Things are Picking Up!

I really love this time of year.  Meeting and working with new clients, reconnecting with some from years gone by.  So many different directions from which to work.  It keeps everything fresh and exciting.  Anywho, here’s the latest ink.  I just fell in love with this old live oak.

There’s still time to commission your very own ink for the super-sale price of $200!  (that’s a savings of $50!)  Just shoot me an email or visit The Ink Lab to get started.  Oh yeah, and you don’t have to be local.  It’s very common for me to work from photographs.  We can even have your ink printed on luxurious note cards, or have prints made of the old family home.  It’s the gift that keeps on giving!

Wishing you all a very happy Wednesday!

The Holidays are right around the corner!  Now’s the time to get your custom pen & ink drawing started, and for a little incentive, I’ve dropped the price from $250 to $200!  So commission that ink, and use the extra $50 to order 50 fabulously matching note cards!

Here’s how the process works:

1.  I start with a photograph.  You can supply a photo of your old family home, your cousins house in Wyoming, or if you’re local to Savannah, I prefer to take my own shots.

2.  I draw up a pencil sketch for your approval.  You tell me if I’ve missed that ever-so-unique weather-vane, or little detail that makes your house a home.

3.  We make any final adjustments, and then it’s time to play with ink.  Your final image is an 11×14 inch drawing with archival ink, and comes with a black mat and a sassy pinwheel bow.

4.  Last, but certainly  not least, for a $1 per note,  you can have your house printed on fine Crane Stationery from my friends at Turtle Creek.  Perfect for that “anytime” note!

I’ve even had small prints made of the old family home, so that everyone in the family can have a memory of that special place!  The possibilities are endless!

So take advantage of that low rate, and availability…(last year my schedule booked up pretty fast)…and commission your ink today!  You can do so easily via The Ink Lab, or if you’d rather not have to “sign in” to etsy, then just shoot me an email at Heather@FLYoungStudio.com and I’ll send you an invoice.

Thanks for stopping by!

…and loving every minute of it!  Here’s a completed ink…(you saw the proof a few days back)…turned out quite nicely I think.  I dropped off another ink today, and sent one over to Turtle Creek to have printed on notes.  Ah, I love the onset of Christmas madness!

post that is…I’ve been running all over town gathering this and that and the other for the SMB…(hope to see you all there this weekend)…photographing houses for pen & ink drawings, and I confess, indulging in a little Starbucks concoction.   Anywho, this was the last thing on the drawing  board…
