A Birthday Drawing For My Friend, Bruce Macintosh

BMACevilsquirrel v3 flatsm

A birthday picture I did for my friend Bruce Macintosh. Bruce is responsible for my very favourite bio ever; I am determined to use this in a book someday:

"Deborah Ohi was born in 1837 in an underground city founded by a tribe of lost Japanese-Welsh seafarers on the site that now holds Toronto. She was raised from birth to be the champion of her people in their struggle against the Great Squirrel Queen, but lost most of her memories in 1972 in a mysterious asparagus accident and hence has no idea why squirrels continue to infiltrate her walls, or why nuts glow in her presence. She is a talented illustrator, and can metabolize several kinds of bark. She lives in Toronto with her husband Jeff."

It would be a shame not to use that bio somewhere. You needn't be shy about your heroic destiny.

Loved the bio! But I thought that it was all true;)
