It was my Uncle's birthday not long ago... Well, he is not My Uncle really, but the Uncle of my ex. But I grew to think that he is and I have no intention of changing my mind.... Funnily enough his family is the only family in England where I feel like at home. It does really feel like MY family... They are all very special people to me and I love them very much!
So, He was 70!!!! Big Number! I had to do something special for him! Obviously, the only thing I could do was a drawing! What else?
Uncle is very big! He is tall and wide and reminds me of a big cuddly bear! So I played around this idea, and drew his family - Uncle, his wife, two beautiful daughters and their gorgeous dog Montie dressed in animal costumes. Here is the result:
I framed it and sent it to him by post together with a hand drawn card. He received everything on the day of his birthday, so everything went up to plan! I think he laughed! And this is the best reaction I could hope for!
