A Lovely Announcement


I recently illustrated and designed this graduation announcement for my sweet friend Marissa who is graduating from my undergrad alma mater this year!  Congrats girl!  Marissa is an extremely talented young lady.  She majored in Creative Writing but started her own photography business while still in school and she is a fabulous singer!  I think her photography is especially stunning.  She is by far one of my favorite photographers.  Be sure to check out her blog and website to see some of the gorgeous images she has captured.


Marissa was so sweet to send me this book as a thank you for creating her announcement.  We took a lot of our inspiration for the layout of the announcement from the illustrator Maira Kalman.    She has such an awesome quirky style to her drawings.  I was so giddy when I received this book from Marissa.  She is so thoughtful!

You are amazing! Do you do the faces (like you have on your blog) of people? and if so, how much
