Birthday Boy!!!



birthdayboy_small.jpg  So, as all good friends should, I felt it my duty to do an embarrassing birthday card illustration of my friend Allen a few years back on his 30th. He’s a self-proclaimed superhero-lovin’ übergeek, thus the character Birthday Boy was born.

The zombie horse is from one of the many bizarre things that have happened to dear ol’ Allen during his lifetime, and merited a starring role on the cover. I won’t go into all the gory details here. Let’s just say the car he was in at the time of the…er…encounter ended up looking like the Purina Dog Chow float in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade.

You can see the finished piece in all its glory by clicking the thumbnail of the card.

    Man, that’s a good looking hero.

    Alas, poor Sassy the field horse. I knew you well.

  2. Eric Says:

    Yeah, …poor Sassy, you knew her real well!

    But he got to truly appreciate her innermost beauty. Well….parts of it, at least….the parts that were clinging to his scalp.
