Birthdays at the Buscema house

Every year when our birthdays came around, we were always excited to see what our Gran'pa would come up with for us. That's because he would always (never missed a year!) draw us our birthday cards. It was by far the best present and something we always looked forward to getting. Here are two cards he had made me when I was in my teens:

At the time, I worked at a local bookstore...we would ALWAYS get customers (mostly on senior discount day) in the store trying to return books they had purchased eons ago!

If you know me, you know that I love my monsters dearly. You also probably know how what a pack-rat I am with my collectibles!

What a great present! My grandpa loves to draw funny pictures for his family too, I love them. I really liked your I Scream, You Scream! post, so cool! Hope you turn it into a book someday I would love to read that.

Aw! So cute! I love how you look exactly the same in the drawings of you as a teenager as you do today!
