Studio Design - Part Two: Happy Birthday!

Five more fun selections from my 60's box of Studio Design greeting cards (see the previous post HERE if you missed all the great Get Wells!) And today being my son's 15th birthday, (HAPPY BIRTHDAY, ZANDER!) I thought I'd focus on the beautifully illustrated bday cards from the same set-- highlighted by hilarious cartoon art that clearly could have only come from that particular time era, though the dad joke aspect of the sentiments seems to have never gone old. Also, you definitely haven't lived until you've seen a snake with hair!

Man, the watercolor (or more likely water-based marker) illustration here is really well reproduced for novelty cards. This was a very high-dollar product.

I love the astronaut (his haircut especially), but I have to say that my favorite is the weird little naked gnome with the potted flower. How utterly bizarre (and seriously, kids, don't show up naked with the happy birthday flowers unless you really, really know the recipient well).

PS, Happy Birthday, Zander! (Don't worry, I'm fully-clothed as I type this.)

Happy Birthday Zander!

Whatever you get for your birthday, just remember you already have the best gift, a pair of cool parents and that's better than any bike or cash or birthday cake.
