Andrew’s 1st Birthday

I love this hippo. This was the very first thing I ever attempted to draw in Illustrator and I can’t tell you how proud I am of the way he turned out (not bad for being self-taught in CS!) Andrew’s mom came to us looking for a cute hippo invitation and she had found a few online that she liked but like most of our customers, she was nervous about ordering online (understandably so…you just never know what you’re going to get). None of our invitation lines carried a hippo invite, and since I’m one of those people who doesn’t understand the phrase, “Sorry, we can’t do that,” I sat down and decided to draw it myself – and he came out pretty darn cute, if I do say so. 🙂
