My nephew just turned one! This occasion called for a special gift, so I designed a one-of-a-kind growth chart featuring some very talented characters. While Owen is just a little chipmunk at the moment, he’ll eventually grow to be as tall as an upside-down black rhinoceros (who’s balancing on a worried polar bear, who’s sitting on an exasperated alligator, who’s riding a moping mountain goat, who’s standing on an easygoing harbor seal, who’s perched on a sturdy turtle, who’s being held up by the strongest chipmunk in the world.) Along for the ride is a casual pileated woodpecker, who I think is making friends with the seal. Happy birthday, Owen!
