Thought I would share a few scans of some drawings I’ve worked on over the past couple months for a wedding taking place at BlackBerry Farm in the beautiful smoky mountains of Tennessee. I has amazed me over the past few months the artist connections I’ve made in none other than… Tennessee! One of my best friends moved there recently and a trip to Knoxville was all it took to convince me- a beautiful place to live and work!

I worked in collaboration with Sarah Pattison of The Happy Envelope to bring these images to completion. Each image represents a different part of the beautiful farm- I actually translated many of the images from rough renditions on plates from the venue!

The sketches including pencil and watercolor wash were not offically released to print- anyone interested in using them for anything in particular? Feel free to contact me. Each line art image was sent to letterpress for Sarah’s wedding client! I can’t wait to see the final paper products!

Thanks for looking! From very chilly Chicagoland, hope you’re having a wonderful day.
