I debated whether I should blog about this or not, but if I want an accurate account of where my artistic interests and energy are going, I’d be remiss to leave out…. wedding planning.
My fiance and I have been dating for 11.5 years(!) now. Needless to say, it’s been a long time coming. :)
We actually got engaged earlier this February which gave me about 18 months to plan. I did start looking at wedding things sporadically, but various life events, a website, an Etsy store, and a 2.5-week vacation to Japan and Korea later and suddenly I have less than a year to prepare!
I had no idea how many different details there are to a wedding — it makes me appreciate even more all the beautiful weddings I’ve had the pleasure and honor to attend.
As an artist, it feels only right that I design my own invitations. :) I will share those and other ideas along the way.
Of course, I will continue to work on other art-y things, as well. :D
You must check out this gorgeous comic called His Face All Red by Emily Carroll. The art is beautiful, the storytelling is evocative and I can hardly wait for more.
It looks fabulous on her website. It feels like she definitely had online viewing in mind with the storytelling and layout, a la Scott McCloud. Her comic should be experienced online for its full impact (though if she ever publishes this in print, I’d snatch that up, too):
She will be participating in The Anthology Project 2, as well.
