When I started illustrating the header for the new website, I knew I wanted something whimsical, and something that would tie directly to the name of the website, which is a reference to a song by The Gothic Archies called “Shipwrecked”. It was the first dance song at our wedding reception.
I started out the same way I start out any graphic design project, by sketching a few things out. Sketches are always the best way to start. If you don’t, then there are a lot of ideas you’re just letting slip away. Get it down on paper!
