Illustrated 'save the date' card

The Brief

The bride approached me to help create a ‘save the date’ card. After some back-and-forth, I managed to convince her to work with this concept.

The background of the card imitates Bondi Beach in Sydney, which is where the bride and groom both live.

The Solution

This solution has been shared extensively on Pinterest after a short run on Etsy offering customizations.

I am approached often with requests to commission the concept.

The number one lesson I learned from this project is that dates are incredibly hard to draw.
