I love this series "Working Artists" by photographer AndreW Paynter.
Especially the ones of Serena Mitnik-Miller since I love her painted blocks so much.

It was harder to take photos of these wedding invitations than I imagined!

I'm going to re shoot and take better (and more) detail shots, but in the meantime I wanted to share the suite of printed matter I did for my friend's desert wedding earlier this year.

The driving force behind everything was to be "not-girly" and the bride and groom wanted a roadrunner and coyote to be featured. Since I was also doing the decorations and flowers, I wanted everything to compliment each other. One the simplest (and most graphic) flowers, craspedia, is also one of my favorites and it matched well with the yellow circle/moon motif and the string of lights was pretty much a given from Day 1.

I love how it all turned out... Better images coming soon!

On this afternoon's walk Arrow and I found a few treasures.
He tried to eat the card, but I am quicker than him.
He was ready to devour it, but I was able to snatch it way in time.
You never know when you're going to need a spare 9 of diamonds.

I'm working on a new project about marine debris and, simultaneously, I am totally inspired but totally depressed. We all *know* we have a trash problem, but the specifics of marine debris can be abstract, especially if you're not actively thinking about or using the ocean or waterways. If you don't encounter marine debris, it's hard to know how bad it really is.

In my research on plastics and what do with it, I came across this beautiful typographic project by Anna Garforth, called Trash Type. I wish our exhibit space was larger; I would have loved to do something like this!

p.s. if you want to know more about marine debris, visit these excellent websites.... it's shocking.

Between R's accident and shoulder now healing, Arrow teething, and my work going full steam, I've been neglecting you, dear Blog.

And so, I give to you these images of Arrow trying to chew a bone bigger than his head, as an offering.

See you soon... promise.

Please meet Mikkel, a quiet and sweet fellow.
