For the gays!

As a youngin', my mother had two gay friends that practically helped raise me. They got married this weekend after 31 years of being together. A couple of days before the wedding, my mother texted me and told me she couldn't find any cards for gay marriages.

...So I made one.

Pride. Geddit?

Okay, actually I didn't think of that joke until after it was done, but I'm still clever, I promise.

Done in watercolor with gouache for the linework while watching a particularly saucy episode of Rome. There are actually some really subtle blues in the mane that the scanner just didn't want to pick up, so that's a little disappointing. They really liked the card though.

Honestly, I checked around and there isn't really a surplus of good gay wedding cards out there. Okay, granted not every state is on the gay marriage bandwagon, but it's not going to stay that way forever. Bwahahaha.
