A friend of a friend asked me to design their wedding invitations. The theme was “Bilbo’s Party”. After discussing it with the Bride and looking at some examples of things she and the Groom liked, we came up with the idea of having the illustrations be monochrome navy blue. I’m really pleased with the outcome. I did it in watercolor, my current medium of choice. I especially like the effect the masked out moon and lanterns have on the main image. I did use some white paint (like a cheater) for the details, but I think the art police will forgive me.
