Surprise wedding gift
So I was asked by my little buddy Sam, to do some artwork for her brother and his fiance as a wedding gift. She had the idea of creating a picture book for them to keep, telling the lovely story of how their relationship began and blossomed over 10 years. It just so happened that the theme of the wedding turned out to be along the same lines so everything tied in perfectly! After meeting by chance while travelling in Australia, they found that they had quite a lot in common and were also due to attend the same university in the following September...and as they say, the rest is history! 10 years later and after some amazing trips around the world, they are finally making a trip up the aisle. The book was written by Sam and her boyfriend Paul and we decided to put it all together by hand to make it really personal and a complete one-off, unique gift. Hope they like it as much as we enjoyed making it. Congratulations James and Kate! Here's a few line drawings and some of the final spreads. Take a peek!
