Mirror Calligraphy Seating Chart - Houston Hand Lettering

I've calligraphed quite a few mirrors in the last few years, but this was by far the largest and it was just absolutely gorgeous in person.  It measured 90" x 34"...had to use a small ladder for this one.  This mirror was also cool as the client wanted a scattered organization with the lines as the mirror was much larger than what was needed for the list roughly 65 lines (about 100 guests).  The monogram was nice as this was the first mirror where a client already had a monogram that was used from the invitation and wanted to incorporate that with the mirror....and I got to play with illustration a bit with the florals around the monogram.....Yes that was freehand :).  Groovy times!  Cheers!

Houston Hand Lettering - Watercolor with Modern Calligraphy

What do you do when a client wants gold ink, but the paper choice would make it difficult to see that ink on the chosen paper?  (See USPS, I keep you in mind when I work :)  Just change the canvas, of course.  We decided to go with white ink on the envelopes except for the envelope for the guest of honor.  On hers, I decided to add a little watercolor and lighten the canvas such that the gold ink would be more pronounced.  Cheers!

Baby Sign Mirror Calligraphy - Houston Calligrapher

It's no secret that I like placing calligraphy on mirrors.  This baby welcome sign is for a Houston mother-to-be that likes just a touch of sparkle.  Hope that she likes it!

I actually calligraphed this as my client waited.  That NEVER happens as I like to have time to myself to work unless I am doing on-site events (engraving, on-site corporate event work).  However, it strangely worked out better for both of us for timing etc. as my calendar was crazy with engraving events that month for various wine & spirit companies & scheduling it later was an impossibility.  So here's to calligraphy on the fly!  Cheers!
