Backlog: Wedding Ketubah

I do a lot of wedding related art.  I’m not obsessed; it’s just a coincidence.

Anyway, did you know that I do ketubot?  Don’t let the name “Christine” fool you, I know some things about Judaism.  Anyway, I like this tradition as long as it’s not like “as your wife I promise to bear you many babies” type of marriage contract.  I just like the ritual of it, signing a statement of love in front of your family on your wedding day, and then displaying it as art in your home.  It’s just sweet.

Did you also know that I know a little calligraphy?  Yep I got a book out at the library and I’m teaching myself.  So if you don’t mind an enthusiastic shiksa designing your Jewish marriage contract, you should contact me.

Pardon the quality of the photo.  It does show some detail, but I wish I scanned the image.  You also can’t tell, but this monotype is rather large!

Ketubah I designed for a dear friend
