Maastricht, Netherlands City Skyline

12 Aug 2013 9:00am

The world is a small place! I don’t pretend to be a pro at the whole Twitter thing, but one day while searching for beautiful letterpress… I found the work of Stephanie of Pink Orchid Press. I am weak in the knees for letterpress and was impressed by her work and decided to “follow” her tweets, bookmark her blog feed, and “heart” her shop on Etsy. All of that caught her attention I suppose  and we struck up conversation about city skylines. Soon, she and I soon discovered we are both from the same small area, of the same city in the great state of Texas! She has since moved to Virginia, but we knew we just had to collaborate on a project!

Thus… the city skyline of Maastricht, Netherlands was born. She will be sending these to the press soon… super excited to see how they look in the permanence of letterpress. Swoon.

San Francisco Bay – Golden Gate Skyline

6 Aug 2013 9:00am

One of the first city skylines I drew for the shop was San Francisco, California. It is well overdue for an update, however I was contacted to create a skyline looking away from San Francisco… and towards the Golden Gate Bridge and San Francisco Bay. Capturing Mount Tamalpais in the background, this custom city skyline gives a view from the other side.

Colorado Springs City Skyline

3 Aug 2013 9:00am

Located in the center part of the state… and south of the capital of Denver, Colorado, the city of Colorado Springs resides at the base of the Rocky Mountains… overlooked by the famous Pikes Peak. When I was commissioned to draw the city skyline, I was also asked to include Peterson AFB,  Air Force Academy Chapel, and the Garden of the Gods as well. This proved to be a bit of a challenge as it encompassed a wide area outside of the Colorado Springs city center. At the scale that would be been “accurate”, all the locales would have been teeny tiny and almost unrecognizable. With a bit of “exaggeration” and scale-skewing, I think the final outcome is most pleasing.

Happy Dancing Farewell Card

31 Jul 2013 9:00am

This over-sized Farewell card was commissioned by a friend of mine who wanted to send a fellow dance partner/friend off in style. At 9×6″ in size, this card was large enough for her entire dance studio to sign their well-wishes as their dancing friend made her way to a new home in Seattle, Washington. Based on this card I always offer in the shop, the card opens up to reveal a custom vector drawing I created of dancing feet. As a side note… I have no idea what dance move that would be… I completely made it up! Ha.

The Seattle, Washington and San Antonio, Texas city skylines are here in the shop as regular notecards, or feel free to take a peek at the standard You and Me card. Happy Dancing!

Superhero Birthday Invitations

28 Jul 2013 9:00am

My very great friend Jackie — whom I have known even before the days of high school — celebrated her sons 3rd birthday last month. (Happy belated birthday, superhero!) I had previously created his 1st birthday invitations (as re-capped in this Design Rewind) and being that she was short on time last year, she did an email invitation for his second birthday. Jackie will have to print and tape that one in the scrapbook… because from now on there will be no more email invitations as she confirmed that I am now their family stationer! So excited. Nothing beats snail mail!

This year, I created a custom hand drawn superhero character of her birthday boy, saving the city of San Antonio, Texas! Printed on bright white linen stock, with a metallic Leisure Blue backer + Cayenne Orange matte envelopes.

From Jackie, “These are the most awesome invitations that ever lived. (My son) looked at them and said, “Coooool!”

Playground Journal Cover Concept

23 Jul 2013 1:02pm

About two months ago, my friend Linh mentioned to me that maybe I would like to take part in a Global Talent Search to be internationally represented by Lilla Rogers. This could open Architette Studios for commissions worldwide in editorial, graphic design, corporate and advertising projects. Well of course! Sounds like a great opportunity. There will be a series of “project assignments” of which each will be critiqued by an (amazing!) panel of judges. Just for my work to be seen by these great powerhouses makes my day!

Assignment: Design a journal book cover as if Paperchase were my client. Having been a longtime fan of Paperchase products, and having a 13+ volume of journals in which I have “documented” my life since 1996, I felt this was something I connected with right away.
Theme: Old-fashioned Playground Items. We all have memories of our favorite playground equipment. I got started by polling my friends about what their favorite playground equipment was growing up, quizzed my family about their favorites, wrote down my own favorites… and did some research on vintage playgrounds.

Let the sketching begin!

Corvette Feel Better Soon Card

22 Jul 2013 9:00am

Upon seeing this design, one might think it was for someone who loves Corvettes, and is not feeling well. It is sort of the opposite. In this case, this custom design I created as a “Feel Better Soon” card for a couple of my Corvette-loving friends whose “baby” was sick… a 2008 C6 generation red Corvette that was involved in a car accident. (A car accident that was not their fault by the way.) Being their appointed “family stationer”, I couldn’t help but feel their pain as well. Feel better soon “Bluesmn”!

I had a lot of fun creating these custom Sweet 16 Birthday party invitations. It is no secret that the color palette of  Tiffany’s Blue + bright white is my favorite! These are modern, classic, timeless… and just the right amount of playful vs. sophistication for a Sweet 16. Not to mention… we have the New York City skyline in there! What more could you ask for?

The color palette of earthly tones +the modern feel of the city skyline drawing give a nice juxtaposition between the two. Featured on natural white canvas stock + kraft envelope.
