Dallas Green Invitations

‚ÄčThe Invitations project was a school assigned project which involved creating invitations for lifetime achievements of a chosen celebrity. We had to include invitations for the birth, graduation, wedding, and funeral (Dallas Green is still alive. Yes, I realize this is a bit morbid. I informed my professor of this fact, yet she still insisted we did a funeral invitation/death announcement.). Dallas green is a folk singer and songwriter from Canada. His inspirations are Delta bluesmen. With that consideration, I chose to do my invitations completely by hand. I hand lettered each invitation and screen printed with 2 colors (white and blue with the blues getting progressively darker through each invitation) on black Speckletone French Paper. They were then packaged in a screen printed wrapping paper and tied with small rope.
