Something Blue

Josh and I will be married on October 14th of this year at St. Paul's Chapel at the Garden & Art's center. We are registered at Target and Amazon

I haven't had a lot of time to plan a wedding(only two months) and I certainly haven't had a lot of money to pay for one. Thankfully, Josh and I have plenty of family members and friends who are willing to help us out. We're making our own decorations, Josh's parent's are paying for our entire honeymoon(including food!), my Mom is making all of the reception food herself, the reception is in my Mamaw's backyard garden, my future Sister-in-law let me borrow her veil, and the mother of a friend is a cake decorator and is making our cake for us(Thanks Maggie!). On top of all of that and the multitude of other ways people are helping us plan for our big day--another friend, Heather Rushing of Dirty Deeds Soap , has offered to make our reception favors and Josh and I have found a really nice Unitarian lady, Sue Weninger, who will officiate our big day for us.

However, both Heather and Sue had one stipulation-- they wanted some sort of illustration done for the big day. Heather wanted one to use for the packaging of wedding favors and the Officiant wanted one to put on the ceremony booklet.

So I hope that this drawing will do. The piece is a 9x12 watercolor/colored pencil illustration.
It took about 12 hours all together and was a LOT of fun to make. I may play around with this style some more. I would love to do a whole comic like this.

Our colors are Navy/Marine Blue, Gold, and White and our theme is "Under the Stars" so Josh and I thought that Doctor Who could be incorporated nicely into the theme in some fun little ways.

The wedding is just three weeks away. I can't wait! Josh and I both are soooo happy right now that, at the end of the day, no matter how all of the details turn out, the fact that I will be marrying him is all that matters.

Afterwards I have a LOT of "Thank You" notes to write and I couldn't be more glad to do so.

Hi Rachael,

I'm presenting a panel at South by Southwest Interactive next month called "What Comic Books Can Teach Mobile Application Developers". I'll use the work that Will Eisner and Scott McCloud put into defining the language of comics to distill linkages between comic book and mobile application design. Can I run my presentation by you later this month?
