The best part of winter is having the time to work on a few personal projects. I was thrilled to create this baby shower invitation for some good friends.
It was challenging, I'd never made such a small a 4 color print before and the card was printed on 3 sides - front, back and interior.
Since the gender of the baby was unknown and both parents are bound to the sea more than anyone I've ever met, with exception of my husband, I was inspired by their love of the ocean when choosing colors and deciding what sea life to include.
I like illustrating things you wouldn't usually see on mass produced stationary. Whale sharks, eagle rays, jellyfish and sea turtles all inhabit the coral reef, one of the mom-to-be's favorite places.
