Bookmark for Sam Kamaka’s Birthday Party

My boss’s wife is the daughter of a great Hawaiian, Sam Kamaka Jr who turned 90 years old in June.  They are throwing him a party and needed some favors, slideshows, and other items to decorate the place with his life achievements.  I was tasked to take some photos from the 1920’s, 30’s and 40’s and touch them up.  I also needed to create a bookmark with some custom text which Sam wrote.  The photo for which I designed the below bookmark was a picture of Sam with his brother Fred.  The photo was professionally done in the 20’s and was in pretty good shape.  I mainly cropped Fred out and removed alot of the noise in the back of the photo.

I really enjoyed working on this project.  Sam has lead a very interesting and eventful life.  His father was the inventor of the pineapple ukulele and was the founder of Kamaka Ukulele.
