Sara and Andrew’s Save the Dates

Sara and Andrew are getting married!  Those two make one of the most fun and free couples that I know, and I’m so happy I got to make their Save the Dates.

I printed the postcards on large pieces of chipboard, then used a utility knife to cut them into uniform cards.  My screen printed four at a time, but it was still a large job- I made 200 cards.  Lucky for me, Sara wanted them simple, with just one color. I think the cards follow the mood Sara wants to the wedding- fun and laid back.  Just like they are.  I know they’re ready for October to get here already!

?Donde estan los luchadores en un mundo loco?

Somehow I’ve acquired a small obsession with Lucha Libres…Mexican Wrestlers.  I think it started when I went to Mexico for study abroad a few summers ago.  I bought several Luchador masks to bring back to my brothers.  Since then, my poor brother Aaron has born the brunt of my fascination; every birthday and Christmas I find some new paraphernalia to give him, whether it’s post cards or figurines or Lotto games.

Aaron.

I would love to see this show some day.  My favorite is “Octagoncito.”

I wanted to make Aaron a Lucha tshirt, so I drew up this guy.  The caption says “Where are the Luchadors in a crazy world?”  I found a Lucha website with the caption “Who fights for honor in a world gone mad?” which is excellent, but my Spanish isn’t that good.

I like the image best on the dark fabric of the tshirt.

Holly Birdsong

Sorry for the lack of posts around here lately.  We’ve been out of town just about every weekend for over a month.  But!  The drought is over, and the rains are coming!  Get ready for buko posts!

Here’s one little project I finished a while ago.  I have this photographer friend named Holly Birdsong (best last name ever) and she desired a logo for her website that was simple and sweet, and not over-designed.

You can see it in action at Holly’s website.  Check out her awesome photography while you’re there.

I also made a little watermark for her, which is my favorite.

I could screen print that all over everything.
