Here's a design I came up with for my son, Ryan's 1st birthday invite. Working on this was a lot of fun, but actually very challenging since I had to simplify everything. My nature is to overwork drawings and design.
I sketched this one up for my daughter Skylar's 3rd Birthday. My son Ryan even makes a cameo as Lumiere. I had so much fun with it that I had to take it to color. I must say and this is probably obvious, artwork is so much more satisfying when your heart is involved. Cheesy, but true. :^)
