Henry & Siân's Wedding Invitation

I was both honoured and delighted when my dear friends and close neighbours Henry and Siân asked if I would like to create the Invitation for their forthcoming Wedding later in the Summer.

The design includes many references to the pair, their family, their interests, this lovely market town where we live and to August when the union takes place.

Printed in a charming eau-de-nil on recycled greyboard - this design recto, the pertinent information verso - by print mæstro Martin Clark at Tilley Letterpress in Ledbury, Herefordshire, with whom I have had the pleasure to work many times.

Henry, Siân and their wonderful children,
Milo and Dolly Danger

Magpies - Proofing & Printing

A lovely darting dash down yesterday for a day of colour proofing and printing with the amazing Suki Hayes-Watkins at the Print Block in Whitstable, before legging it back to East Anglia via Spitalfields in the afternoon. Exhausting but very, very rewarding. http://www.theprintblock.com

A detail of the final print

This new limited edition screen print is for an Exhibition, 'Nature is a Language' - work inspired by myth and the natural world, at The Gallery Norfolk, opening this coming week-end in Norwich. http://www.thegallerynorfolk.co.uk
