Invite Drawing

Me and Louise are getting married in April. As a 'creative' I wanted to do something for the invite rather than just buying something. I did this drawing from a photograph with the intention of having it on the front.


I got lots of help from my friend Carrie with the design and tried a load of different things, but it just wasn't working. Eventually Louise found a make-your-own kit in Confetti and the drawing found a home inside, opposite the details.
This was a difficult drawing to do because I hadn't tried to draw a 'realistic' likeness of anyone for years, and I'm used to drawing rough sketchy scribbles that noone apart from myself needs to get.
It's difficult to be objective but I like it. Carrie said it looks kind of like the Posy Simmonds strip in the Guardian which is is fine by me.

Great picture. I like the clean lines. Carrie is right, it does look like Posy Simmonds. Keep up the good work.

My last 2 blogs seemed to have bugs, but this new one seems to be working.

You're not going to see much other stuff like this on here.
