Don’t mind the survey, it will be up all week in order to cull the Erstwhile readers who are erstwhile, ok?

Thank you so much to the 30+ of you who jumped right in yesterday! I’ve already learned so much, seriously.

I love an artist who shows the behind-the-scenes work. It must be the wannabe baker in me; I really like to know how things look along the way. So I loved seeing this photo on Pounding Mill Press’s tumblr:

It’s the invite-in-progress for a wedding, showing the library where the couple got engaged. I mean, really.

I love Ming’s work because each design always has a story behind it, or a reason the design developed the way it did. It’s a one-woman show (plus, she has a day job!) and I imagine she has thoughtful interviews with her clients, gets lots of personal details, and then develops something totally unique to them. Amazing.

Like this one: a burger themed announcement suite because the parents had nicknamed their baby Whopper, Jr.

all this and much more, over at Pounding Mill Press. (also, lots of photos on their facebook page)
