Hot off the presses and just in time for MICE 2016 this weekend: this print off a fall friend playing the fiddle. Those in Cambridge this weekend will get first access (it’ll be online after that). A partner piece to this one will show itself as soon as I can finish it…
What a nice surprise to get the wedding invitation I designed for some friends in the mail today! It’s my first wedding invite, and I’m glad with how it came out.
