Save the Date Sneak Peek

We went for postcards for our Save the Dates that I designed last week. Glossy front, matte back, and craft paper envelopes with a return address stamp that I designed a couple weeks ago.

It was tough to pick a fave from our engagement photos, but this one was a winner with the colors and composition…I had to Photoshop a bit of the graffiti around a bit, but in general, the composition lent itself well to creating typography around the photo. It is definitely hard designing for yourself, but you have to step away at some point! Here is the front of our Save the Dates! So happy to have one more thing checked off the ever-growing list…

Art and Design Lately (Part II)

Hello, lovelies!

Just wanted to drop in to let you know that if you click THIS LINK (you can only get the promo through this exact link), you will get free shipping at my Society6 store. I have two new illustrations available as iPhone cases, throw pillows, t-shirts, laptop and iPad skins, and more.

Love you to the moon print

Love You to the Moon….and Back is one of my favorite sayings, and when I designed it recently for a personal project (MyPublisher makes the BEST photo books! I make one every year for our anniversary. Hopefully Coop doesn’t read this before this weekend, surprise ruined!), I thought it could make a nice addition to my Society6 shop.


Also, Foxy! He is the first of a larger scale project I am doing, and the first in a series. He makes a pretty cute pillow.

Art & Design Lately (Part I)

So, I haven’t shared many of my design and illustration projects with you lately, and that needs to change! I have been working around the clock between my full-time graphic design career and maintaining my own business, and I have been blessed to do some awesome projects lately, with more in the queue!

First up to share with you guys…some Save the Dates!

Save the Date Postcard

I loved working with Rachel and look forward to doing her wedding invitations! We decided on postcards, and the matte finish was perfect for writing addresses on; plus I got to design two sides! I worked with a printer in Maryland (thanks for the tip, Taryn!!!) and they did an amazing job. Can’t wait to do more work with them in the future.

If you have an upcoming wedding or event, don’t forget! Sam Bock Illustration & Design is more than just animal drawings, friends (although I could do them everyday for the rest of my life and be enormously content), and we are open for business! 🙂
