Today we commemorate the thirty-sixth anniversary of the day my husband arrived on the planet. His birthday, of course... he didn't just show up in a spaceship in 1977 or anything.
Attempting to draw a picture as a birthday homage on a day when drawing doesn't come easily is frustrating. I was having another off day today so my plans to draw Josh as a pirate or as one of the kids from The Goonies or as an 8-bit video game character crashed, burned and were magnificently unsuccessful.
During one of the many Google image searches I conducted for reference material, a picture of Speed Racer popped up. I can't stand Japanese animation but I thought it'd be fun to draw Josh in the Speed Racer pose with his Saturn SL in the background.
Guess who can't draw cars on a good day? Moi.
Guess who can't draw her husband as a Japanese cartoon character either? Yeah, you guessed it.
I did this little sketch as well... I thought it was kinda nice.
