Wedding card illustration ‘Bart & Maaike’ – Case Study

Client

Bart & Maaike

Illustration for the invitation of the wedding of Bart and Maaike. Maaike is my niece. And when she got married she asked if I would illustrate the invitation. A long time ago I stopped accepting such assignments. Especially if the briefing is as detailed as with this project. I like to have as much freedom as possible.

Creative strategy

By keeping the car and the newly married couple in color and the two cities (Leiden and Puttershoek) as a black and white line drawing in the background, the image was kept interesting. It focussed the attention on the main subject; the car and the couple.

Process

I wanted the overall look and feel to be authentic, humble and friendly. Just like the newly married couple. Therefor, the pencil sketches are hand-inked, embracing the little imperfections. Then I scanned the image at high resolution. Opened the scan in Adobe Photoshop, retouched it and added color. I also added the text.
