tumblewords is a word game for apple-type devices from minicore studios in austin. i illustrated two of the themes, “mushroom forest” and “painted desert.” it’s actually pretty addictive, i spent several hours on it last weekend and managed, with considerable joy, to wrest 150 points out of it by finding “philistine.”
so, do step into my world and find some juicy words. i painted all that woodgrain for you!!
all of my tumblewords bits and pieces:
i submitted a couple designs for judgement to the minted wedding design challenge:
a stark, twiggy invitation perfect for an outdoor wedding in a wooded setting, featuring hand-lettered initials and a pair of flirty birds. there’s a john lennon quote at the very bottom from “grow old with me,” a song that makes me straight up bawl.
a springtime meadow-themed storybook wedding invitation featuring your favorite creepy crawly outdoor denizens in a Victorian damask pattern. heh, everything my young man hates about hanging out in nature!

it’s sunny in san francisco today so the paleteros will probably be out in full force in the mission:
their popsicles are usually the severed heads of licensed characters so i made up a few of my own, but i guess they came out looking kinda gentrified:
the google image search on “paletas” always cheers me up.Filed under sketchbook | Tags: paletero, san francisco | Comment (0)
an invitation for a redwood grove wedding. the bride is a san francisco urban forest and urban agriculture coordinator who saved some trees i really like from being cut down at zeitgeist. hooray!
i spent some time at the botanical garden in golden gate park to do my research. they have a redwood grove tucked away in a little corner by the moon viewing garden. i was really delighted to find that it was carpeted in hearts (wild ginger and redwood sorrell), perfect for a wedding. PERFECT!!
i was a little sad to abandon the bats, but i’m sure i’ll find a use for them one day.Filed under tea painting | Tags: owls, redwood, snails, wedding | Comment (0)
livetrace in illustrator has some great potential! i have to mess with it some more. i used it to make some damasks out of the collateral bits + pieces left over from a commissioned picnic wedding invitation:
