shachar + jason : custom illustrated table signs

paperfinger-tablesigns08 This was a really fun project for Shachar & Jason's wedding (mentioned in a recent post). They are avid travelers and wanted to name each of the fifteen tables after a place in the world that is especially meaningful to them. The locations ranged from Vermont to Florida, Venezuela to Hawaii.

They provided me with a list of these locations as well as access to their amazing collection of photographs online. I used their pictures to inspire pen-and-ink drawings that represent each place, along with the location's name written above in calligraphy. The table signs are all the original drawings and I'm also sending them scanned versions so they'll be able to keep these illustrations around forever.

I loved the variety of places, knowing the tenderness that Shachar and Jason feel towards each of these spots, and the simple black and white style of these illustrations.
