Wedding Invites {Graphic Design}

I recently worked with Stephanie and Andy on creating a unique wedding invitation for their fall wedding. They are both huge baseball fans and decided to get married at the Baseball Hall of Fame in NY. In order to tie their theme into the location, we worked on a formal looking but baseball-ticket-inspired invite. What do you think?

My favorite part is the barcode at the bottom which has their initials and the wedding date as the "code". The witty bride came up with that one!

A painting a day for 43 days...Wow!

On Etsy, I randomly stumbled upon a painter who made it her mission prior to her 43rd birthday to create 43 paintings in 43 days. Β What a great way to create affordable artwork for collectors just starting a gallery of their own and for an artist to truly challenge themselves with an achievable but challenging project!

She describes the project in the following words:

"A painting every day for 43 days straight, is the challenge I created for myself to commemorate the last 43 days of my 43rd year. And in keeping with the β€œ43” theme, each painting in the series is priced at 43 dollars.

Each piece is an original work of art, not a print or a giclee. It is priced so affordably, nearly anyone can own an original.

I wanted to do something silly that would challenge me to create each and every day and promote artist made work. It was serendipitous that the idea came to me just in time to begin the 43 day countdown till my next birthday."

Here are a couple of my favorites from her Etsy shop:
