Alec in Northville, MI contacted me to do a drawing for his girlfriend Erica’s birthday. He wanted something really funny that is an “in-joke” between the two of them.
Here’s what Alec told me:
“Her name is Erica, and she’s great…except in the mornings when she doesn’t get her coffee. When she’s grumpy in the morning I call her Princess Erica. Without getting too over-descriptive, my thought is a quick sketch of her sitting cross legged, somewhat hunched over, and tired eyed reaching for a coffee cup. I’d really like it to be of her with her glasses on, which she only wears in the morning.”
Custom drawings make the best birthday gifts, don’t you think?
