illustrated marriage proposal
As we are coming up to valentines day it seems fitting to feature this. I found the story on 'design sponge' and egad this is just too sweet to comprehend!
'illustrator joel kimmel proposed to his girlfriend of five years, chantal bennett, on new year’s eve 2010 by writing and illustrating a short story – the final page revealed an antique brass ring with a coral art nouveau design that was hidden inside the book! my favorite part of the story is that chantal, also an illustrator, and joel work side-by-side every day – so joel was working on the 20+ illustrations for the proposal while sitting right next to her!
