A friend of a friend once asked me to create a birthday card which would be appropriate for all ages and for both men and women. Puzzled, I asked Ryan for his thoughts late one night. He was half-asleep, and mumbled “Potato…” That was the inspiration for this card! Many people try and fail to bake good birthday cakes, so the ease of baking a potato might lure someone into sticking a candle in the fluffy center and calling it a day. I love potatoes of all kinds, from french fries to stuffed baked potatoes, so on a more personal level this card was fun to draw and to give to friends.
