Illustration Friday: Drifting


My submission for Illustration Friday's "Drifting" is one of my Marisol Hidden Treasure greeting cards. It has a gift certificate inviting the recipient to dinner. So after you drift, you have dinner, how perfect.

Hey Val, this is so great. Love the idea...can I just fill in my name on the invitation? I'd love to eat and drift! Nice work...as usual!

What a great idea. Drift then dinner. I love everything about it, from the art to the concept.

Just beautiful, inside and out. I love all the little touches on the inside of the invitation. How could anyone refuse such a lovely summons.

I like the mixture of concepts:
a bit of Venezia, maybe a bit of Arabia, but absolutely Mediterranean, romantic and irrecusable.

Wonderful Invitational Val! Love the touch of the restaurant awing on the inside too.

Do you think it's dangerous to have this on your blog? You may have people print these and just show up at your door for dinner. . .maybe me!
