It's Seth's birthday today
And just in time for this day, comes from good friend to the blog J(ay), a stack of sketchcards, drawn by a variety of different artists, all different takes on the Flowering Nose. What a gift, one that took a year or so to put together! There are 41 of the cards. Forty-one! Not being good at organizational things myself, putting together something like this seems like almost an impossibility to me. But you did it Jay, out of love for Seth's art, and warmth toward his family.
Here is an assortment of cards, in no particular order:
Many of the sketchcard makers are familiar with the Flowering Nose game, and got his cape, his colors, and occasional fields of flowers.
To everyone who contributed, thank you so very much. Seth's take on life was goofy, charming, and filled with a combination of loving and working hard. That his birthday should bring a gift so much in the same spirit shows me that his spirit is still here. Wow.
