Introducing the Etched in Stone Collection
As a ketubah and wedding certificate artist, October is my favorite month of the year. And not just because I can finally take a deep breath after the insanity of summer’s wedding season (though that’s nice too). It’s because I finally have the bandwidth to dig out all the ideas I set aside, all the doodles I stashed in drawers, and all the vague notions I jotted down on scratch paper over the previous year.
It’s a strange process, going through 8 months worth of “ooo-how-abouts” and “hmmm-what-ifs” and figuring out which ideas might actually have legs. After all, a little time tends to reveal a lot about an idea. Some ideas that I couldn’t wait to draw back in April now feel a little…flat? Others that were only the haziest of thoughts last February have now coalesced into a solid vision. But October is the time when, with a clear mind, I finally get to riffle through all these half-baked plans and pursue the ones that speak loudest.
And with that, I’m excited to announce the launch of a brand new line of ketubahs and wedding certificates. The idea for this line first emerged sometime last spring. During the madness of the spring wedding rush, I found myself craving extreme minimalism – clean lines, limited colors, a cool contemporary feel. In other words, something very different from what I typically illustrate. The “Etched in Stone” collection is 6 ketubahs and 6 wedding certificates that each in some way feature marble and granite textures. With soft colors and crisp geometric patterns, these designs represent both the tenderness and gravity inherent in marriage. I couldn’t be more excited to add the collection to my shop! You can see the entire collection here. And, as always, I’d love to hear your thoughts!
