comments from Jody:

Inspired by vintage dictionary illustrations and book covers, I wanted to create a "quaint with a twist" announcement. The twist is the deer - get it? :)

I love this. The background is subtle. I love the play on words. I liked it even before i saw "dear" but then it really clicked once I saw that.

i think this is far from boring ; ) i think the simplicity of the design and delicate quality of the illustration speak the visual language of 'baby'
