Happy Belated Birthday, A!

by Erin on May 12, 2009


A's birthday present

Excellent co-conspirator and artist Beebe (click on that link, you won't regret it) and I put together a scheme to give A. a present for her recent Birthday Celebration, and to thank A. for completing another kick-ass year of Being Awesome. The plan: he'd draw one of his fantastic characters in a dress of my choosing!

Above, you see the result — it's this dress, Spadea 1338. I'm sure you agree that Porthole Woman with Comb Hat is the perfect model!

Happy birthday, A.!

“A” as in Anaheed as in wife of Ira Glass? If so, I may be a bit three-degrees-of-nerdy starstruck.

Hitchiker chic, circa 2009. Future generations will shake their heads in astonishment and admiration.

Beebe talked mostly about the RED VELVET CAKE. :-)I’m glad you liked it!
