Georgia On My Mind

I remember thinking as a child how grateful I was to live in Georgia… and one of the reasons was because the “Georgia song” was just so awesome.  I mean, who doesn’t love some Ray Charles?! I finished a batch of wedding invitations, and was excited to start on some more creative projects.  This one has been in my head for a really long time, and I couldn’t wait to sit down and put it on paper.  A simple sketch of the state, some watercolor, and my Tombow Fudenosuke pen made for a quick little project, and I’m super happy with how it turned out =)

Downtown Marietta Watercolor Print

I have a fond admiration obsession for maps.  Especially vintage ones.  I also LOVE our quaint downtown with all of the amazing restaurants and green space.  I really wanted to capture all of that in an artistic way.  So I ventured the 2.1 miles to downtown and sat in the coffee shop and sketched out a map of “the square” and its restaurants.  I researched each restaurant’s logo and tried to capture the detail of each one.  A little watercolor and some outlines were added once it was all sketched out.  I must admit… I selfishly did this commission for myself, but after posting it on Facebook, I was flattered by how much people wanted it!  Keep your eye out, they’ll be coming to the market very soon!


And just between you and me?


If I had to pick one restaurant out of the bunch?


I couldn’t.  Because they are ALL A-MAZING.  Just ask Alton Brown.
