So I'm poor. And we all know that drawing is what people do for gifts when they’re too poor (cheap) to buy real gifts.
And thats fine because we all know the drill:
If it’s christmas; You draw some depiction of Santa getting his christmas on, if it’s easter; You draw a giant bunny in close proximity to chocolate eggs, if someone loses a tooth, you draw them a toothfairy, except you don’t because tooth-losey cards aren’t a thing, but if you were to express your feelings towards somebodies loss of a tooth in card format, you’d tart that card up with a horribly predictable likeness of the toothfairy.
But what about birthdays? birthdays don’t have a thing. And they should. There is no good reason why birthdays should be the one event that can’t be summed up as a character on a card.
So after an unreasonbly long time trying to decide what to draw, I realised there is gap in the market, and I went about designing the embodyment of birthday cheer. And after much workshopping, sleepless nights, and graphite stained figures, I present to you:
So to klee, happy birthday and stuff. I hope the Birthday Dapper-Fish bought you all the fun-stuffed memories you wished for. And to everybody else, remember, Birthday Dapper-Fish, it’s a thing. Tell your friends.
