Illustrations for the big Day


I thought I would post the artwork I created for my wedding. These images range from the invites to some simple yet fun designs used for buttons and a bunch of other materials for the wedding.

I hope you all enjoy as I will keep these items closest to my heart.

Wishing everyone out there a wonderful night.


Set of buttons designs for our wedding them which was fall and family.

The official Whetstin Family Crest!

This was the design I made for the cake we wanted. Again the theme was fall and family (family bluebird).

Based off my design this is the AMAZING result that was created by the talented and the BEST tasting baker River Town Cakes.

Map I designed that was packaged together with the invite.

Back pattern for the map print.

This was the front of the RSVP card people sent back to us.

California life

California oh California,

This is an open letter to the life I have started in California specifically San Rafael just outside San Fran. My new career at Telltale Games as their Art Director is going amazing so far I have been handed a great marketing / web group to push in the right direction and my hopes to step up the design look and feel of the company and products. Lots of potential for me to play and invent some great work. Life in California has been really interesting and growing on us. I think this area is full of great things to enjoy but we just need the weather to clear up, as most might know winter in the San Fran area= Grey and cloudy or better described as FOG. I am sure it will get better and the exploration of California can begin. Things on our list of must sees is the beach, red wood forests, shopping/food areas in the heart of San Fran and lastly some fun hiking.

Other then the above mentions of growth, learning and new beginnings, life is grand. Started working out regularly and drawing more. These past 4-5 months have been stressful and a wall for me in terms of creativity but I feel the energy coming back and I am going to start to get lots of content being pumped out and on this site as well as every other place I live on in the "inter-web."

Well I think that is enough social words for today here is to a lot more and I hope to keep feeling this motivated and ready to communicate my work and passions.

Have a wonderful day,
