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?
