happy birthday tony!

So, I've been pretty busy getting ready for the holidays, but never too busy to make one of my dearest friends a birthday present.  Tony D'Amato, one of the best friends any person could ask for, is celebrating his birthday today, and he always does these amazing comic strips for me on my birthday because he's super nice and ridiculously talented. I always feel like I can't compete, but I also feel compelled to put as much blood, sweat, and tears into his gift as he does mine, so here it is.  He drew a Victorian self-portrait of himself a while ago (see below).  which I kind of love...and then I thought...here's a man who is constantly drawing other people and giving these great gifts they'll keep forever...and no one ever draws him...except for himself.  So here's tony in a crochet/cross stitch portrait. to the best of my ability.



Happy Birthday Tony! You're definitely one of my top 10 favorite things in this world.
