I'm going to share a secret with you guys: for the past few years, I have had envy in my heart. Envy for the beautiful handwriting of calligraphers like Paperfinger and Plurabelle. I really felt like fun calligraphy would add a lot to my artwork...but try as I might, I couldn't get my handwriting to do anything even remotely beautiful.
When I decided to re-brand Stinkerpants and have my website redesigned, I knew that I wanted a new logo. I wanted something special that really fit the Stinkerpants brand. When I came across the calligraphy of Gina (aka lettergirl), I knew I'd found the gal for me.
Luckily, Gina agreed to do my logo, and it was everything I'd dreamed of and more!
Then a couple of months ago, a new client contacted me and asked me to make a giant version of my wish tree print for a rehearsal dinner. When she inquired about using the font I'd used for my logo, the wheels in my head started turning...maybe I could start working with Gina on a more regular basis!
Lucky for me, Gina was enthuiastic and agreed to offer her calligraphy services to my clients! Just recently, I completed my first wedding invitation featuring Gina's calligraphy. I think it's really, really special:
Plus, I just love doing letterpress! It's a fun challenge that takes me outside my normal day-to-day drawings.
In addition to offering calligraphy to my custom clients, I am also excited to be working with Gina on my clothing line, as well. I woke up from a sound sleep at 3am a couple of months ago - and for once, Charlie wasn't to blame! I thought to myself, "GINA NEEDS TO DO THE CALLIGRAPHY FOR THE CLOTHING LINE. IT WILL BE MAGICAL." It was all I could do not to run to the computer right then!
I'm excited to say that the designs for the "Word Play™" line have now been re-worked to include Gina's calligraphy. And I think they're totally cool.

Christie and Kyle had a super sweet idea for their wedding: to have it in the same location as they had their first date! For their wedding invitations, the wording begins on the front of the card with a drawing of the lake, and continues to the inside with a drawing of the building where their wedding was held. And of course they had to incorporate their kitties too!
This is an A7 Greeting Card invitation.
Drawings include two backgrounds, two people and two pets.
Last year I was contacted by J, who has SUCH an awesome personality! I loved her immediately. She and her now-husband J have an adorable baby girl together, but they just hadn’t gotten around to marriage yet. Once they’d made it official, they decided to throw a reception to celebrate with their family and friends.
We decided to do an announcement and invitation to the reception featuring their daughter on the front. As you can tell by her “finally!” thought bubble, J’s got a great sense of humor. :)
Their wedding took place overlooking their small town in Texas. To set the scene, I drew some local cacti and added a little wooden sign with the name of the area.
On the inside, J & J are pictured, celebrating. :)
There are three main landmarks in their town, so we made sure to bring special attention to them. :)
Thanks J! I had an awesome time working with you, and I just love how this turned out! :)Comment
I just got back from my printer and just couldn’t wait to post these invitations! Betty and Jeff were looking for a simple invitation sweet with cherry blossoms. These were printed on linen paper, and I just love how they turned out!
Love love love!!Comment
If (for some reason) you tend to visit my homepage on a regular basis, you might have noticed that it changed recently. One thing I love about my website design is that I can easily replace the main image to completely change the look. Let’s just say I get bored with my surroundings pretty easily; I was one of those kids who re-arranged the furniture in her room on a monthly basis, just to switch it up.
The new image on my home page is one of the drawings I did for J & P’s wedding invitations. I absolutely *love* the way these turned out, and I even had the pleasure of delivering them in person. J & P are totally awesome, and they have great taste in pizza.
The set includes an A7 folded card and an A2 RSVP card, with matching envelopes.
They feature the Golden Gate Bridge on the front…
And J & P with their two kitties on the inside. They’re standing on Mt. Tam, and in the distance, you can see the Berkeley marina and the UC Berkeley Campanile.
Their kitties are SO CUTE it almost hurt to draw them. Love love!
Butterfly! I am so ready for Spring!
Here’s the RSVP, which matches the front of the invitation.
I absolutely love these invitations, and J’s excitement made me feel so good! I can’t wait to hear what their guests have to say.
Thanks, J & P! You were a pleasure to work with, and to have lunch with! Congratulations!Comment
