uncle dude's birthday day
it's my brother pete's birthday today. he turns 35. woo hoo. ruby wanted me to photograph her carrying a transcribed sign of her well-wishing, since she can't get the words out so good. DOOOO.
for his thirty-fifth, i designed for him the second in a limited edition of "fatty and diamond d" tee shirts.
fatty and diamond d were pete's pet rocks when he was a little kiddo. he used to put out a bowl of water for them (because rocks are dry and thirsty). them being rocks, i thought it fitting to portray them in a (rock) band. to the left we have fatty on the upright bass (doom babba doom babba doom) and diamond d on the mandolin (plingy pling pling).
cheers, brother! i love you!
