If you aren't familiar with Burtday (June 29) tradition, you should know that every year for my birthday I order a Cookie Cake and incorporate some silly graphic/message on it. One year I did "Happy Birthday, Manuel". Another year I requested "IM N UR BDAY EETING UR CAEKS!" (with picture of cat licking paw). And, of course, "I HAS A BURTDAY," with a Lolrus wearing a Lolhat.
This year I decided to do something different. I had a blank cake (blank except for the border) ordered and requested icing on the side. I then illustrated my own Burtday Cookie Cake. It was a lot harder than I thought it would be; I survived three icing accidents. My rug was not so lucky, however. Damned icing squeeze-tubes!
Anyway, I got a kick out of it. As did my friends who attended my last-minute bowling party:
I actually cranked out this graphic in ten minutes and posted it on Facebook about thirty minutes before the bowling started, hahaha. Thanks to everyone who came out! :D
Oh, and here is the general promo image for my pretend 26-day Burtday Blowout:
Haha, I had a lot of fun designing these super-quick, super-silly graphics!
