I’ve been so pleased to do some projects for the Del Ray Artisans. This is a group that I was involved with when they first started out in the early 90’s. I had just moved to Alexandria, and it was a great way to meet people in the neighborhood. Since they started, the group has grown so much. I recently helped out with the new website, and was amazed at how many programs and offerings they have.
Here is the design for this year’s Holiday Market over at the Colisanto Center on Mount Vernon Avenue. Every year they have wonderful hand-crafted items for sale by local artists. This is a two sided card that will be mailed out and distributed widely to promote the event. The new website that I helped their Technology Director Dawn Wyse Hurto produce is delrayartisans.org.
For this card I did an illustration of the Del Ray Artisans building, and a rough sketch of how it sits at the intersection of Mount Vernon Avenue and Commonwealth Avenue. They’ve been putting up a Christmas tree at the intersection, so I had to add that. The title on the card is hand-inked and scanned into the computer.
