You’ve selected… Brown Eyed Girl

I’ve probaly spent more hours watching Seinfeld than any other show or movie (Forest Gump and A League of Their Own are probably a close 2nd and 3rd). I love the little inside jokes that Seinfeld creates; the man hands, everything with Puddy, and my god, the anti-dentite.

Everytime then refrence one of their producs or movies I immediately want to create something for it. Once I found a company that had made some fake posters for Seinfelds fake movies I thought, I have to make my favorite.

Another one I really want to do is Sack Lunch.

While not my favorite character on the show, Kramer has had his moments. Drinking scotch and making a jingle for Hennigans was Kramer at his best.

If you really like, you can get the shirt, too!

You gotta know how to get there. In style.

Having a cool fiancée means I get a lot of say in the overall look of pretty much all of the wedding related things. For the most part it’s me saying “no” to a lot of ornamentation and yes to simple and traditional. Honestly, I’m pretty lucky that she has a similar aesthetic. Or, at least, also enjoys mine. Which means I get to use a lot of Futura!

I think I enjoyed making these directions the most. The goal for the invitation packet was to try and capture the feeling of the ’60s but keep it updated and modern – not to look like a prop from Mad Men. The invitations, reply cards, and directions are all printed on ivory colored paper or cardstock which adds to the old effect but is still in the tradition of wedding invitations created today. I’m happy with the results.

It’s here.

This is something I’ve been wanting to try for a while – the blurry tree. It also has the desaturated border that I used on a thanksgiving invitation (below) which I’ve been liking lately.

wallpaper

I’ve had this idea for wallpaper for a little while now. It’s inspired by the geometry and pattern in Victorian wallpaper, but now in an exciting and fun new pattern – safari animals! maybe for kids. I don’t know, I just liked it.

As I was saying, inspiration, ah yes, I went to the zoo and really felt the need to settle down with a fire and a warm mug of coco and read a book. And then after that start making this design. I’d like to add to it to get rid of some of the dead space and make a more intricate design… maybe add birds?… foliage?… not have anything upside-down? 

If you have any thoughts or suggestions please email me, @reply me, call me, text me, or visit me at home (please call ahead first).

update – now with birds!
