The Gruffalo birthday party: invitation

Each year I make the invitation for Ezra's birthday party. For his 4th birthday, Ezra requested a party based on his favorite book, The Gruffalo by Julia Donaldson.

I wanted Ezra to feel like a part of the book's universe. So, I drew an original illustration, based on the book's artwork by Axel Scheffler, which had Ezra celebrating his birthday with the characters in the story.
I had fun attempting to create a drawing in the style of another artist, and Ezra loved the invitation. 

Take a look at the invitations for Ezra's third, second and first birthday parties.
