December 2018’s Projects

Happy New Year card Wes Anderson influenced
Shoshanna's New Year card was a pleasure to make - classic Shoshanna - she's always fantastic to work with! Design inspired by Wes Anderson this New Years card is all about family - and new furry member, Aviva. Lots to celebrate for 2019!
Unju family portrait by jolly edition
The cutest family! Seven years ago when Jolly Edition was in it's first year, Unju & Jason commissioned one of my very first stationery projects (and a very favorite). We've been working together the past couple of years creating a portrait for their important milestones, home ownership, first baby, their first second baby. I absolutely love these people and can't wait to paint whatever comes next!
1970's wedding portrait illustration
This is the second portrait we've created of Karin & Dan. The first portrait was a couple years ago for their daughter as a wedding anniversary present. Their other daughter requested her own portrait of the two, with the same style in mind but a totally unique piece.
jolly edition illustrations
Claire and Howard had the coolest request for us to design a deck of cards with illustrations personal to them. The artwork is winky and adorable, I can't wait to see how the cards turn out!
