Animals are cute
These are some birthday cards I made recently. The subject matter is inspired by a recent trip to Tofino. It was really incredible up there. We were with my parents, so we got to do the touristy stuff like sea kyaking and whale watching.
Wild life sightings report: grey whale, humpback whale, sea otters, seal, starfish, anemone, murres, some other things that live in the ocean, bald eagles and some seagulls.
I decided to feature the otters. Why? because they are the cutest.
Speaking of sea otters.... I took my parents to the aquarium while they were in Vancouver, and my dad and I were watching a sea otter playing with a pool noodle. Then I hear this kid say, "is that it's penis," and I was thinking to myself, "no, stupid. That's a pool noodle." But then the sea otter faced me and I realized that the kid wasn't really that stupid. The sea otter was definitely having a sexual encounter with the pool noodle, and continued to do so the whole time the beluga show was going on next door.
I decided not to feature that scene on the birthday card for my grandfather. The sea otters in Tofino appeared to be very chaste.
There is one more card that belongs with this post, but I didn't get a chance to scan. Hopefully my sister will be so kind to scan it and e-mail me the file.
