Invite #1



Hi. Ever design a wedding invitation for your sister and get totally carried away? ...oh. well I have! take a look! I'm learning painter and discovering what it can do, and really liking it. And yeah, a couple weeks ago I was at my friend's house, and he showed me a colored pencil drawing I'd done in first year of college. It had the sea and clouds, and ridiculous cartoon characters having a battle. A Banana Pirate vs a Chicken Snack Wrap holding a shank to be exact, but that's beside the point. Point is, the sky blew my mind, and it was thanks to the teachings of the wizard of painting himself, Ed Huner. I did my best to remember everything he'd taught me when I made this. So for me, it's kind of a step back through the dark haze in my mind to find forgotten gemstones of memory. delicious ones. I mean hey! the snack wrap was a goddamned force to be reckoned with! So here's to Ed, who's teachings inspired me, and all my college pals to kick some ass.

I like this. Because it's one of those great pieces of work where I can go; "Yeah, well, I could do that too, If I saw colors!", which gives me an excuse to say I'm good at something even though I suck at it.

Kudos on a really well done painting, and congrats to your sister & your future brother in law.

This is gorgeous, Ben! I think I'd be beside myself with flattery if someone did this for me. :)
