Beehive vs. Chompers: V.P. Debate Party

V.P. Debate Party

Invi­ta­tion design for our party, Thurs­day night.

I couldn’t resist – Lisa and I are host­ing a V.P. Debate party this Thurs­day night, so I whipped this invite up. The idea was to play up two of the more strik­ing ele­ments of the can­di­dates’ appear­ance: Sarah Palin’s bee­hive and eye­wear, and Joe Biden’s abnor­mally large teeth.

The result is kind of awk­ward but fun. It looks like an elon­gated John Kerry-sized head, but it’s not worth fuss­ing with the pro­por­tions at this point. Just go with it… I did.

UPDATE: The always charm­ing Emily pointed out a rather obvi­ous spelling mis­take in the design above. Can you find it?

On Turning 30

Decem­ber 22 came and went, and now I’m 30 years old. I can’t even com­pre­hend that sta­tis­tic. Grow­ing up, I fig­ured that I would have accom­plished so much by that age – it seemed so far away. Today, 40 seems ridicu­lously far away. There is prob­a­bly some kind of les­son in that.
