Someone asked if I could provide more pictures of the mirror seating chart that I created back in June. Wanna see it? Here it is!

What do you do when you receive a mirror that is bigger than you and unframed (hence unable to stand against a wall), but you need to place a calligraphy seating chart on it? Time to work on the floor. Let's make it happen. #calligraphy #calligrapher#handlettering #mirror #seatingchart#mirrorcalligraphy #love #floor #work#writing #write #penmanship #lovemyjob
This is the latest mirror that I completed for a wedding a few weeks again. Yes, you know that I'm working on getting better with posting my work in a timely fashion :). Ironically, this is the EXACT same mirror as my very first one years ago. On this one, I had to resort to using a "print" lettering for the guest names as there were 200 guest lines & not enough space to calligraph each name in an ornate hand. Turned out nicely, I think :). Cheers!
People say that you always remember your first, last and best experiences. This picture represents a first as this was the first calligraphy mirror seating chart that I calligraphed back in 2014 for a wedding. My work has come a long way since then :). I am so pleased to see that Weddings in Houston Magazine liked my work enough to feature this seating chart amongst the many in the blog post from that wedding. The photo used for the feature was photographed by Ama Photography. Beautiful photography work!
As always, I am honored & pleased to see that my work was chosen from what can be hundreds of photos that are submitted! I was even more delighted to see that the mirror had been pinned on Pinterest which led me to the blog feature. Unfortunately, Weddings in Houston Magazine will not credit the work to me as I do not pay them for advertising. That is also a first as I have been fortunate to have my work featured in various publications regionally & nationally that respect the work of the artists that they feature. Alas, I am pleased to see that my work "made the cut" with Weddings in Houston Magazine. Cheers!
To view the feature click the picture below or HERE. The picture below is of the calligraphy mirror seating chart shortly before it was delivered to the Omni Hotel for the reception.
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!
