Happy Birthday Charlie

I had the pleasure of creating a card for a co-worker, her nephew is turning 25 and she wanted a personalized birthday card.  He enjoys skateboarding, singing, and his phone so I took to searching for the right image.  

All my images were of young boys, too young for a soon to be 25 year old so I started looking online. Surprisingly, I couldn't locate an image that covered his interests for his age group.  I came across Aiden by Mo Manning and right away I had a good feeling about the image.

I colored Aiden with my Copic markers and kept the layout simple.  My co-worker was grateful for the card and I hope Charlie likes it!
