Improper Bostonian

Here's some lettering I did for the current Improper Bostonian! It was for an article on "green" weddings. How timely, no? 

 

And some details. I was super pumped to finally get to make lettering that looked like branches! (yes, SUPER pumped).

 

I also did some spots:

 

If anyone is curious how these sorts of things start out, here are my sketches. My sketches for lettering jobs tend to be a little more refined and cleaner than for illustration jobs because it's not just about getting a concept across, but also direction for tone and how the piece reads. It's more work up front, but a lot easier for me in the end.

Thanks to super-easy-to-work-with, art director, Nicole Begin. This was a lot of fun!
