A card for my brother’s birthday

Hello again everyone!

Today I was stung by a wasp and it hurt so much it is madness. Just thought I’d share that as it’s still hurting now and it happened just before lunch (it’s midnight now)!

I thought, seeing as I haven’t even started sorting out the cat drawings at all, that I’d do a different post first. My brother is going to be 30 in a few days (on the 16th) and so I thought I should think of an idea just for him. It’s a big birthday and it needed some attention put into it so I got to work. He’s a computer game tester and general avid gamer so I was thinking along those lines initially.

I drew a few rough ideas and played around with some stuff, but to be honest it was only the second or third idea I had that I realised was a very good one.

So I got to work drawing a few different versions of it (this was originally at the garden opening so I had to pay attention for customers at the same time) and eventually I had some relatively good ones. So I scanned them in so I could make them a bit neater and turn them into a respectable card, and thus his card was born. See the final design below:

I turned out rather well I think

Hopefully he’ll appreciate the time spent, as it must have taken a good 3 hours work in the end. And it’s rather amusing I thought. I even looked up pictures of the NES and Playstation to make sure they were drawn accurately (to a degree).

Anyway, love to hear what people think.

Good day,
