Niece’s Birth Announcement

Category : Design, Illustration · No Comments · by May 7, 2014

My sister and brother-in-law welcomed their first child into the world this past February. I’m of course elated to be an aunt, so when my sister asked if I could design Miss Evelyn’s birth announcement I couldn’t say yes faster.


The process was a just a few quick sketches to figure out what I liked. Followed by a more detailed illustration that I could bring in to photoshop and start painting away. I hand drew her name. Then added some paint stroke textures to the whole piece. I knew I wanted to included natural elements since most of her parents hobbies involve the outdoor in one way or another.


This was so much fun to do. I’m really happy how they came out and I think my sister was too.
