quick interjection --

look! Gale Larson, who is fabulous, paid me to create a baby shower invitation, pooh bear-themed if possible. i am a huge fan of Ernest Howard Shepard, the artist who first drew Winnie the Pooh. so i decided to go with that style. the line drawing actually his original, then i had fun in photoshop to color it (tangent: did you know that Shepard drew all of the illustrations in pen and ink, then when he was super old, like in his 90's or something, he was asked to color them? so he did! crazy. i think that's the story, according to Bethanne's history of illustration class). Gale's co-worker Lisa whipped out the poem in about a minute, i then designed the little card, gale printed it on cute little 5x7's and that was that!

i changed the info on the card in case any crazies come across my blog. sorry, folks. no stalking available here.

ps, how do you like the new blog header?

I LOVE LOVE LOVE the blog header and I think you should learn to draw like that so you can make me a BIG one of those to hang on the wall of a future baby room! PLEASE?!

Cute, cute, cute invitation!

Also, love the blog header. I'm still coming up with ideas for mine...

Love the invite, and love the header. Now, here's a question - your hand font - is it a font, or did you draw the text in, so the whole thing is an integrated graphic image? I'm doing a review for a company that allows you to do custom fonts that are actually engine searchable, which is interesting -

Anyway, all nice.

Thank you, my friends!

And yes. The hand font is my handwriting and I wrote with a stylus on a Wacom tablet (LOVE that thing!) So it is an integrated image.

That's interesting; what company is it?
