Favorites from a fun and super Austin-y engagement shoot from last week.

I’m working on a new photo series that involves my pretty friends and laser cut paper crowns. This is the first.

This laser cut and hand painted piece was a custom order from a friend who wanted a piece of art based on the Tom Waits song “Fish and Bird”. I painted a large piece of plywood with several coats of deep blue, which I watered down so the wood grain would show through. The tears in the heart are painted with silver Pearl-Ex, which I also used for the feathers on the bird.

Progress on my tiny doodles paper.

More lettering/typography practice. I love ampersands!

G is for green and growing things.
I’ve been playing with some typography/hand lettering lately. For this piece I drew the g in pencil on the board and filled it in with plants from outside my studio.
