MEMORIAL CARDS

A few weeks ago, I talked about being approached to use a piece of mine for a tribute card, to be handed out at a funeral. (And how being asked such a thing is simultaneously flattering and humbling.) I posted the piece here, but finally received the actual printed cards in the mail. If the printer is reading this, they turned out great:

For the sake of the card, i had to remove the text from the illustration, and lay it out on the back. No big deal. It looks much nicer this way:

Truth be told, this wasn’t the first time I’d been asked to contribute to the memorial card of someone near and dear to someone else. An incredible woman named Jane, who I befriended a few years ago, asked me to create one for her, too. Her mom had recently passed away, and she wanted something special to pass out at the service. The final piece wound up being a laminated bookmark. On the front, a field of lilies (her favorite flower):

On the back, an old Scottish saying:

It translates to, “Long may your chimney smoke.” Man, do I love that!
