It’s become a habit for me to make birthday cards for my immediate family (you can see a handful of cards from past years here). Each year the cards get weirder and weirder since I don’t want to illustrate the same thing over and over again. This year was no exception.
First, for my fashionable sister, a card featuring everyone’s favorite controversial elderly German: Karl Lagerfeld. The way he half-heartedly throws neon rainbow confetti gets me every time I look at this.
For my EDM-obsessed brother, a card featuring the disembodied head of Dillon Francis (since the pillow featuring his face was unavailable when I looked). His 2014 album is titled Money Sucks, Friends Rule, so it wasn’t difficult to come up with card copy.
Now I want to make a line of snarky greeting cards featuring doodles of fashion designers. And also use my neon colored pencils more often.

To continue on the theme of my initial post, here is another card that also involves a monkey. Specifically, party monkey.
This was for my brother’s 18th birthday. You can never be too old for monkey cards.
I think I used the same photo reference for this card and the party monkey on the last card. Months and months apart. Weird.
