Doing things differently

Good morning, evening, after noon everyone!

Okay I decided to put the main focus of this blog on my drawings and arts. I think things would get a bit too messy and chaotic with all my random stories and updates ^_^...soooo here you guys will find lots of drawings, my ideas, my problems (hopefully you will help me out with some feedback/tips) and so on. If you want to know more about a certain subject, just let me know and I will answer you the best I can! I will make a new blog thread if I want to start a new subject, but for now, I will focus on my drawings!

Now I'm working on a few sketches for several occasions this month. I have a wedding coming up. Usually not a big problem, to buy a wedding card, but this is a same-sex wedding. Also not a big problem, but you can't find wedding cards in the store. Okay you can find the standard wedding rings, cake, champagne glasses, groom suits, brides dresses. But I find these a bit cliche and a bit on the safe side and usually the printed text on it, is aimed at the bride and groom. So the problem arise to find a suitable and fun wedding card for my two friends. Let me show you what I came up with:

So what do you guys think? Its a quick sketch featuring my two friends in chibi form and two champagne glasses on the back. I was thinking to add a sunrise or to keep it more simple and add a champagne bottle instead. I will think about it. Do you have any suggestions? Also, not so sure if I will use watercolors or edit it with Illustrator. Decisions, decisions....

I will keep you up to date with my new ideas about this project! So stay tuned!



  1. They look happy... Now that you mentioned it, you're right. I'm surprise no one has marketed anything on same sex celebrations. But your friends should be thrilled to see a card specially made for them.

  2. I love the card! I do hope to see the finished look and I'm sure your friends would be happy to get a specially made card of them from you! Have fun


  3. that's pretty cute, i'm sure your friends would be happy to accept this !

    my country doesn't allow same-sex marriage so i never attend one ... i wonder how it looks like, it must be fun huh ? :D

  4. @ Art Fan Ako: Yeah it's true; it's strange that there isn't a marketing for same sex cards yet. I've several, in my opinion cute and simple sketches, that easily can be turned into cards :). I'm going to open a web shop with items printed with illustrations I made...I will definitely include same-sex cards ^_^! Thanks for your comment!

    @ Hevn: Thank you!! What do you think of the final result ^_^??

    @ Siska: yeah the wedding was really fun! And really not so different from a normal wedding ^_^.

  5. @TJ
    Well, I'll be truthful and tell you that I love it!

  6. From the place that you've started your wedding card, to where you end it (in the next post), it seems to have come out really nicely.Doing that for a same sex marriage must have been quite a task.


  7. @ Prakteek: Thank you for your nice comment ^_^! It was quite a challenge indeed, because I didn't want to offend them by specifically pointing out that it is same sex card, by using typical colors or images. But I think it has become very personal since I turned them into chibi. But they were very happy with it ^_^! Mission accomplished!!

  8. @ TJ - Well all's well that ends well :) true, it was tricky, and it shouldnt have seemed offensive in any manner.

  9. @ Prakteek: Nicely said! It really was a fun project too! I have more ideas ^_^ haha, the creative stream of thoughts keeps flowing...


Yay! Thanks so much for leaving a message. I always reply, so do check back okay? Ciao!
