In a discussion with a friend the phrase octopus riding a goat came up. It left an image in my head that I had to get out.

For my wife's birthdays (for any holiday really) I try to come up with funny ways I can do cards for her. This year I thought it would be fun to make up a pop-up card. Well several hours later, after scouring the inter-webs, I had ideas for at least five or so birthday cards. I thought once the cat was out of the bag on the pop-up card it would be old-hat so I figured I should just do them all at once. With a little story telling I came up with a cute little way to package a pop-up book to give her (which meant I had to come up with something else to give her as a card). I found some templates for pop-ups here, I then threw them into photoshop and created my own design on top of them.
|The title comes from whenever I ask her what she wants for her birthday, or any holiday, she says "I don't know?"|
The cover image for this piece I did on my iPhone using Sketchbook Pro.
|This pop-up was a witch in a cauldron so I had a bit of changing to do for this one.|
|I changed this one from Santa Clause to me.|
