Meet Ellie. Apparently she is having a birthday in a few weeks.
Unfortunately her outward appearance is a complete misrepresentation of her age. Despite looking like she has been smoking Gauloises and swigging back gin for the better part of forty years, Ellie is only going to be four.
She's had a hard life. But is the much treasured friend of a small boy who will soon also turn four.
The small boy asked if I could draw a birthday picture of Ellie. So here she is in her glory days. Back when she could still hold her head high (... being as there was still stuffing in her neck).
The small boy has asked for this picture to be recreated as a birthday cake. Yep, sure. That will be right before I have cause to take up the Gauloises and gin.
