15th Birthday Party Invitation. 1996. Photocopies,
Expresso Pen, and Sharpie on copy paper, 11 x 17".
... they want their birthday invitation back! In celebration of my 29th birthday (today), here's my party invite from 14 years ago. I've only got one more year to be in my 20s, so it's time to get crazy (after I hit all my deadlines, of course)!
There are only 3 (and a half) original drawings on that bustling, crowded composition: the musical chair, the Tick (on the right) and the cat. If I remember correctly, the cat belonged to some girl I was trying to impress. While I'm sure she was very happy with it, things did not pan out the way I had hoped.
Sadly, I haven't matured much since then.
