After much toiling and troubling I've finally finished the wedding invitation that I've eluded to in so many posts. I was initially nervous about taking on the task since a Wedding invite obviously has a lot more weight attached to it than a show flier, but the bride had a pretty clear image of what she wanted and that help tremendously. I'm actually not used to looking at it as a whole since I've been cleaning it up in photoshop on such a minute scale for the past month, but I have to say that I'm pretty happy with the outcome. It's more or less exactly as I envisioned the final product. I'd never really thought about doing anything as formal as this, but more and more people from my generation are getting married these days and unique invitation designs are definitely sought after. It's definitely something I should put some thought into.
*Sigh*... and much as it pains me to say, considering how much work went into it, I kind of like the silhouetted version better. What do you think? I guess I could always make a flashing GIF file.

A few days ago I babysat my younger cousin and took her to "storytime" at the local library branch. Here I discovered that hanging out with kids is very strange and it makes sense why people become so weird when they become parents. What do you think would happen to you if you spent nearly every moment you had with an infant trying to communicate things to them ... and failing most of the time? Then think about how weird you have to be to be a preschool or kindergarten teacher. Anyhow, I drew some of the kids at storytime and I think it made some of the other parents uncomfortable. I wonder why?
