This has to be one of my favorite event services: illustrated table signs.

Congrats to some wonderful clients who were married last Saturday out in Water Mill, New York. They asked me to create and illustrate a dozen table signs for their rehearsal dinner. Locations included Boathouse Row in Philadelphia, the Upper West Side, a Belgian Beer Bar downtown, the New York skyline, Syracuse University – along with a drawing of their prized pup, Roxie. All the drawings were based on images in their photo albums or from photos online.
