Wood Reception Sign - Houston Calligraphy

This custom wood calligraphy sign was created for an event where my client wanted to honor a loved one that is no longer here for an upcoming event.  I thought that this was a beautiful sentiment.  This wood plank was roughly 11" x 14".    I had it stained and then I calligraphed it.  Staining and such isn't really my department.  Trust me, you want it that way :).  

Ever feel like "this is missing something".  That's how I felt after I finished with the calligraphy.  I walked away from it to work on another job.  Then I came back and decided to add a little illustration for a little "something more".  My client loved it as she was only expecting calligraphy, but she was quite pleased with result which in turn made me pleased as well.  Cheers!

Color Me Groovy - Houston Calligraphy

This style came about because in art (not life) I LOVE mixing a little bit of chaos with beauty.  The result is often so so cool & groovy.  On these I placed a rose gold/copper under the Bella Grafia calligraphy script that of course I calligraphed by hand.  (Anything else would be uncivilized :))  

I've done something similar to this before, but with modern calligraphy and a bold "relaxed" title name.  "Modern calligraphy" is not my go-to...I'm a bit of a purist, but once you understand traditional calligraphy, "modern calligraphy" is a cake-walk.  I digress....  Here's the result!  Have a groovy day!

I don't address envelopes too much anymore, but these were for my favorite client, Lola :).  Obviously, certain numerals have been omitted for privacy.

Marble Tile Calligraphy - New York Calligrapher

Who doesn't love Italian white marble with gold calligraphy? I have no idea.  I just adore hand lettering on marble tiles right now.  These were for an event in New York and this client chose my ornate Bella Grafia hand-calligraphed script.  I also created a few with silver ink which honestly on initial thought, I questioned the idea based on visibility.  I LOVE it when my clients prove me wrong and it turns out beautifully.  The 2nd pic is the result of silver ink on the white marble tile.  The subtle combination of silver ink on white screams for all lesser colors to bow down.  ADORE!!!
