Happy Birthday Rishi and Geetika, and Bon Voyage Martin!

So I was busy making cards thrice this week. First up was Rishi's 30th birthday on Friday...

Also on Friday , I saw my friend Martin who is about to go off to Cameroon for 6 months to carry out some botanical research in the rain forests, collecting specimens, and (at least in my imagination) probably going completely insane and running around the woods like Rambo, which I decided to illustrate for a leaving card...

Finally, yesterday it was Geetika's birthday. Coincidentally, her housemate Aine bought her a butterfly necklace for her birthday, and I'd drawn a butterfly hairclip on her card...

The ink in my printer has run out at the moment, so I've been colouring all these cards by hand using marker pens. It's quite nice not to be using Photoshop for a bit (especially as I've been spending quite a bit of time on my laptop working on my website recently), but it means that I have to work with a more limited range of colours.

  1. You're working hard!
    I like your friend collecting specimens with a bazooka. Be collected... or die.
    Also that massive cake :)
