♥ The Invitation
Last week I was asked to illustrate an invitation for a friend’s baby shower party. She is extremely pregnant (any minute now!) so I had to turn this around fairly quickly, as the party was a last-minute decision. Regardless of time issues, I LOVED doing this invitation and think it came out very sweet in the end.
Here are a few sketches I did prior to scanning the final drawing. (Before deciding on the teddy bear, I made a few tests with a sleepy bunny and also a baby owl.)
And here is the final drawing in ink, before I added color digitally.
I am going to start posting more work-in-progress images from now on, what do you think? It’s one of my favorite things to see on other illustration blogs and I think it’s inspiring to get a glimpse of how other artists work.
♥ The Party
Presents, flowers, cakes and cocktails. It’s not humanly possible to go wrong with that combination, is it? It was lovely!
The party happened at Cinco, by far the BEST cocktail bar in Lisbon. I recommend their champagne & vanilla mojitos, also known as Milli Vanilli. They are sublime!
The cupcakes were from Tease Bakery. I recommend their lemon cupcake… oh who am I kidding? I recommend every single cake they have! :)
