Commission - Part Two

60th anniversary table card place

I was recently commissioned by private clients to make invitation cards and table place cards on the occasion of their 60th wedding anniversary. What a thrilling project it was! First because it is not everyday one meets a lovely couple who celebrate 60 years of marriage, and second because it led to my playing with symbols. In my previous post you can find the illustration I made for the invitation cards, and here above there is my illustration for the table place cards. As the background was too bright and prevented a clear perceptibility of the diamond I changed it for a darker blue (see below). What is it with these birds? Well, they are Eurasian cranes; they are monogamous for life, and they are symbols of longevity and fidelity. I also love drawing birds :)
