The Wedding From Outer Space!

Today was my sister's wedding, so this post goes out to her, her husband and their new life together!

I did a CD cover and back cover for some music albums that she and her husband gave out at the wedding reception. Sort of a "thank you for coming" gift to the guests. My sister and her husband came up with the name "The Wedding from Outer Space" for the wedding and we came up with the idea of two aliens getting hitched at a church, with a skinhead, a punk and a mod thrown in the back. My sister and husband love all kinds of music like ska, punk, rockabilly, psychobilly and they themselves picked out all of the songs for the album. They even DJed at the reception.

The title is written in Catalan because the wedding took place in Spain. Me and my family couldn't go to Spain, but we saw the whole wedding and talked and met some people through Skype. You'd think watching a wedding through Skype would be a little weird, but it actually worked out really great! We saw a little bit of the reception where they gave the toast and a friend of my sister's and me showed me the CD album through Skype with my designs and told me she really liked it, which I though was neat-o!

Here's the back cover:

She wanted it to have carcicatures of her and her husband with their cat all saying "Thank You you for coming!" in Catalan.

My sister was originally going to do the designs herself, but she was so busy preparing other stuff for the wedding that I decided it was best I do it all. They were sort of done in the last minute so you might see some mistakes here and there, but I plan to fix them later on for a future portfolio.

It was really cool to see my sissy-poo get married and I know that she'll live an awesome and happy life with her man!


Sorry I haven't been putting up anything of the music vid or anything else, but I have have been working on the music vid like a sonuvabitch and will show you you some stuff soon. I also plan to get back to work on other stuff (like my film for instance) as I work on the music vid. I'm usually not very good when it comes to working like that, but I'll try my best to work on different stuff at the same time.

So come back again if'n you wanna see some new stuff!

This is so great. I'm sorry you and your family couldn't go but I'm glad you got to participate through Skype. That cd cover looks phenomenal and I'm sure she appreciates you helping.

I've been working on the design aspect for my sister's wedding. She is either crazy right now or will be crazy soon enough. I suppose that's to be expected when both she and her fiance are finishing up their undergrad, she's applying to med school and they are planning a wedding on top of that. Like I said, crazy!

Finish your stuff when you finish it. I know that probably isn't the best "go getter" advice but I've been in the same funk lately. If I try working on stuff when I can't concentrate or I'm just not feeling it everything turns out subpar or worse. Godspeed!

Thanks for the kind words, Whitney! I'm not perfect, but I know I always try my best with what I do, which is the important thing.

That's really cool that you're helping your sister out with her wedding. Hope everything turns out well and not too crazy!

Godspeed to you with your goals as well!!
