I think I received more cards this year than last, which is odd because I have very few friends and several of the people closest to me send NO cards.
Above, the corporate card from Tani Underwear, a luxury brand I'm using in some shoots lately, plus a color-ful and creative card (plus crayons!) from Michael Screiber & Fam I'll soon dive into his One-Man Show: The Life and Art of Bernard Perlin.
Below: Hard to choose a favorite, but Anthony Coombs — designer of my Encyclopedia Madonnica 20 — got points for his die-cut card so pretty he couldn't bear to sign it.
Finally, below, check out my pal Bobby's bootylicious card, and Michael Stern — starfucker extraordinaire! — went with Bruce Springsteen this year. My other starfucker mentor, Brian Boyle, offered himself with Alex Kingston, but it's hidden away in his tasteful card:
Thanks to everyone who sent me a card, and big thanks to the 800+ who wished me a happy birthday on Facebook. The well-wishes often came with positive notes about my blogging activity, which is much needed 11+ years in.
