Social Media Correspondence Cards

29 May 2013 9:00am

As of late… here are the little mini correspondence cards I have been using in the studio when including a personalized note in orders or in letters to family and friends. It features a little space to write in the screen names for Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Instagram. I just wanted to share! Here is a post I wrote about the Social Media Dilemma… and what I post where!

Chicago City Skyline Save the Date Postcards

23 May 2013 9:00am

A few months ago, I had the pleasure to work on this custom set of Chicago, Illinois city skyline Save the Date bordered postcards in a heavyweight smooth finish natural white stock. For these, I had to “revive” my now retired version of the skyline (an older style drawn in 2009!) and in an interesting twist… changed the skyline into a Sage green finish.

Project Graduate Construction

20 May 2013 10:45am

As we round out another school year, I have a hard time believing that I graduated high school so long ago… I still remember how it felt to be spontaneously thrown out into the “real world”… and then to feel it again when I graduated college! Time surely does fly!

New in the Construction Series… is Project Graduate! This is the first time I’ve designed within the Construction Series with a silhouette as well. It was the perfect solution to keep the design friendly to everyone, and just adjusted the outline for Project Graduate Girl/Female and Project Graduate Boy/Male.

Free Friday: New Drawings

17 May 2013 9:00am

It has been a while since I wrote about my secret desire of becoming a world-famous artist! (Ha.) I thought this Friday would be a great day to write about some works that I have created in the past few months. There is more in the works… more soon! (Prepare for many photos…)

I have been creating in a few new directions, and while it is fun to experiment and try new things, I also need to be careful as not to represent my work portfolio as a whole as being without direction, unstable or incomplete. I’ve always drawn “Muses” and “Little Worlds”… and recently started on “Crash Diet” and a new ‘top secret’ series… but it might seem as if each of the works come out sporadically… I get inspired, draw it, post it… inspired, draw it, post it. It seems that I need to be inspired, draw it, and then perfect it.

More coming soon, but just know that I am going to be staying away from the “trends” in art these days (i.e. drawing girls, unicorns with arrows, animal bones and skulls, antlers, etc.) You know what they say, if it’s trending, you’re already too late. Artwork is just like any other “business” out there. The goal is to have a market, to be appealing and to find that niche… and then own it.

St. Louis City Skyline Wedding Suite

8 May 2013 8:00am

Last month, I completed working on a full wedding suite featuring the city skyline of St. Louis, Missouri… with an added bonus mini plane to figuratively represent the “Spirit of St. Louis”.

St Louis City Skyline Invitation Suite by Architette Studios

I really enjoyed working in the classic navy blue and bright white linen realm for the color palette. I especially love the pop of the custom cerulean blue mini plane as it twists through the skyline and stars. It was featured on the invitation belly belt, dinner reception card… and RSVP postcard, tying the entire suite together.

Earlier this month, I worked on a fun set of surprise birthday invitations in celebration of the bit “5-0″! They were created in the classic Tiffany’s Blue / bright white textured color scheme (my favorite)… and with a little wayward bundle of balloons.

City of Irving Notecards

23 Apr 2013 8:00am

Located in Williams Square of Irving, Texas is a public fountain bronze sculpture installation called ‘Mustangs at Las Colinas‘. It is said to be the largest equestrian sculpture in the world. (Everything is Texas is bigger!) It was commissioned in 1976 from sculptor Robert Glen and was installed in 1984.

MustangsLasColinas

Last month, I was commissioned to draw this sculpture to add to the bottom portion of a custom stationery set design for the City of Irving, Texas… to commemorate the city’s honor of being awarded the Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award – an honor for the highest level of national recognition of performance excellence that a U.S. organization can receive!

Design Rewind: Island Welcome

18 Apr 2013 8:00am

Looking back over the years that I have been creating for Architette Studios, and given that I started my design blog much later, I felt it to be important to look back over the years and to showcase some of my older work as well… that pre-date the blog! This new series will be called “Design Rewind”.

Today, a look back to April 2010:
“Island Welcome” : Chic yet relaxed look to the future honeymoon on the Island of Bora Bora.
Item: Wedding reception menus for a venue on the Boston, Massachusetts harbor.
Inks: Flushed Pink, Java Bean // Stocks: Speckled Recycled // Fonts: Scriptina, Century Gothic // Finished Size: 4.5 x 8.5″

Waco, Texas City Skyline

16 Apr 2013 8:15am

Last month, I was commissioned to draw the city skyline of Waco, Texas for a custom wedding invitation suite. My immediate thought was… Waco?! But I just love being contacted to draw the more uncommonly asked city skylines… it is the perfect opportunity to “travel” to a city I might not have otherwise decided to. (Lambertville, New Jersey and Occoquan, Virginia are another two that come to mind!)

Waco was founded by a tribe of Native Americans called the “Waco” or “Hueco” in Spanish in 1849. The early settlers were determined to be the first to build a bridge over the Brazos River, and so the Waco Bridge Company was born. The company hired Thomas M. Griffith of New York City as the engineer who in turn hired John A. Roebling and Sons of New York (who later went on to build the Brooklyn Bridge) to do all the cable and steelwork.

Waco 1911 Postcard

As if that wasn’t enough, built in 1902 Waco Steel Bridge was at the time, the longest single span steel bridge in the US!

Waco 1902 Postcard

The city’s nickname is the “Heart of Texas”, and is also the home to Baylor University, the Dr. Pepper Museum and the McLennan Courthouse. All of which (and more!) are included in my Waco, Texas city skyline.
