1 Wedding & a Magazine Feature

I can't quite believe that this time last week Russ and I were crawling along the M1 motorway in the belting rain, on the way to my sisters Wedding in Yorkshire. It took us longer to get there than my Swiss relatives who flew in from Geneva (mind you their plane had to make 2 attempts at landing, the weather was so vile) Eventually & thankfully the 120 guests all arrived safely and the partying began!
Uncharacteristically for me I didn't take a single photograph, so until the official wedding photographs arrive I borrowed a few from relatives.

Aly, my little sister you looked absolutely beautiful & Jolly if there was a 'Brother-In-Law' catalogue I would recommend everyone order one of you!


Having been bombarded by my art all her life it was no surprise when Aly asked Russ to design the invites, but I couldn't butt out completely! she let me make the table favours (cute buttons) and table plan using Russ's design.



I also wanted to give the newly married couple a piece of art (that wasn't mine!) & thought the sentiment of this Valentines screen print by the sensational Rob Ryan was just perfect.


Russ and I stayed on an extra day at this beautiful house that relatives had rented & ate & walked & chatted & generally just had a bit of family time. Spring is here and it feels great.



So as you can imagin the week started quite flat until this arrived in the post....


A few months ago I was asked to draw an illustration to celebrate the 5th anniversary of Elle girl Korea. It is such a thrill to appear in Elle, especially along side such incredible artists like Eveline Tarunadjaja.




Whilst I was drawing her, I imagined a little boy at the party would shyly tell her "I like your Bow"


& "I like your Hat" she would say right back.


Both prints are now for sale in my shop & to continue the celebration of the newly married Mr & Mrs Humprey's with my lovely blog readers, anyone wishing to buy a single print or set of two can chose 2 postcards from my shop for free (saving $6) Just write 'Humprey's in the message to seller section when you check out, oh and let me know which postcards you would like :)
