Ferocious Birthday Card and Kitty Cats

I have been doing lots of information gathering and internet searching to find cool new things to doodle. I have found some of the coolest and most exquisite doodles out there are in small Moleskine (not a typo) notebooks. One of the images I found was of a lion made with some cool, doodley alterations.

My dad’s birthday required something extra special, and of course manly, and I’m not sure what could be more manly than a roaring tiger, so that is what I set our to draw.

Highly stylized tiger and swirls.

This doodle reminded me very much of some work I did in junior high and high school. As with every new technique I experiment with, I learned a ton. I even hid a little duck in there, possibly my most inconspicuous duck yet.

Whenever I send a birthday card out, MrE also makes a special custom dollar bill for the recipient. For my dad, he made the best dollar ever: a sock money wearing a BYU hoodie! My dad collects awesome socks and bleeds BYU blue, so the combination is perfect of course. Check out Mike’s skills:

Just in case you are worried that drawing on paper money is illegal, it isn’t, as long as you do not tamper with the numbers or make it unfit to be spent. We oftne leave superhero themed dollars as part of our tips.

Of course I can’t just leave you without an adorable photo of our own ferocious beasts:
