It's birthday season around here, so I've been a busy little bee drawing illustrations for the birthday peeps. This year I asked everyone what their favorite wild beast was and then drew it coloring book style. I've been calling it my Wild & Wondrous illustration series. It's been fun so far and it's been interesting to see what animals are picked! Here are a couple more additions:
There are more in the works, and you can see the entire series here as it gets updated.
I like to shake things up every year and do something a little different to celebrate birthdays. I find it helps keep things interesting and meaningful. In the past I've created art, organized a large family gift, gathered heartfelt notes from everyone in the family, put together a photo album, taken the birthday boy/girl out for a one-on-one lunch, given a meaningful gift, or even given gag gifts (haha, suckers!). You never know what you're going to get with this wild card! (Unless your birthday is later in the year, then hopefully you can figure it out based off of the pattern from previous birthdays.)
What do you like to do to celebrate the birthdays in your family?
