Birthday Invite

This is a little invite for Harry's birthday party. Can't believe he's two already. I did this pic with whitener pen on the cover of my black diary at the recent Offset conference. I went to a talk by Gary Baseman (www.garybaseman.com), who did the artwork for the Cranium game. He talked mostly about his collection of diaries and sketchbooks, and I certainly fall down in that regard - I rarely have one with me. Anyway, he sat in front of me at another talk and just started sketching in his book. So I drew this image on the cover of mine.

It was a white on black drawing, but true enough, it came in handy when I decided to do the invite. A bit of Photoshop, a touch of InDesign and here it is.
