happy birthday, rian hughes

I don't usually paint birthday cards for people because it gets expectations too high and I'd spend all my time making cards. But the thought of drawing Rian Hughes as a Dan Dare type character eating cake tickled my fancy and I had to turn it into a morning sketch. Our illustrations are almost polar opposites from each other's; Rian's are very slick and exacting about period design elements and mine are full of foibles and wobbles and a mishmash of styles. But he's a real kindred spirit when it comes to tea and cakes.

Which reminds me, I once did a pinky birthday picture for another Hughes, but I don't think they're related.
