So these alternative wedding photos aren’t the most crazy crazy wedding photos out there (try googling “zombie wedding”), but they do look damn good.  Check ’em out over at rocknrollbride.com!

So things have been a bit crazy over here in the Little Yeti Cave, but thanks for your patience!  Anyhoo, here are some new invitations that are up over in the Invitations section!  I hope you like them!

So www.rickkitagawa.com is finally up and ready to go out into the world.  There are some definitely tweaks I can still make, but it’s good enough for right now. Check it out to see my wide range of illustrations, fine art, graphic design, and some scans of my sketchbook!

Now it’s just time to get going with more art, more wedding invitation designs, and more awesomeness!

Sorry for the lack of updates, but I’ve been swamped with a graphic design gig, some freelance illustration work, as well as helping a friend/client Priya screenprint her own wedding invitations!  I helped with the layout and typesetting, but she pretty much carried the weight of the designing and I just helped execute it.  Thursday and Friday we knocked out 125 invitations and RSVP cards (2-sided!!!) via good ol’ fashioned manual screenprinting.  That’s a whopping 500 prints to pull!

It was exhausting (esp. for Priya, who was doing most of the work) especially the run that we heat embossed, but now she can say she designed and printed her own wedding invitations, and they look fabulous!  Priya is going to send me the whole invitation package when she’s ready to send them off, so I’ll definitely post some pictures when I get them!

Vermont’s legislature just legalized gay marriage!  Awwwwww yeah, baby!

Read all about it here: http://www.hrc.org/12455.htm

I feel like the tide is turning and people are finally starting to realize that keeping people from marrying on the basis of sexual identity is completely discriminatory and wrong.  Thanks Vermont senators and representatives!

The sleep schedule of Little Yeti is a bit wack right now, so instead of being asleep as per usual, here are some awesome new art pieces by two of my favorite artists, James Jean and Shepard Fairey.

I’m always astounded by their awesomeness and the sheer volume of work they manage to put out every year.  Great inspirations to get me designing/painting/illustrating.
