Happy Birthday Eric


Happy Birthday to Eric Barclay! Eric is one of the most talented
illustrators around. He is a very kind soul and it has been my joy to
know him. He is a devil with a brush and paint. Painting images that
make us laugh and scream with delight. I call him my twin brother
because we love the same artist and illustrator and laugh at the same
crazy stuff. Yup, Mr.E is cool. He just did a wonderful interview with
Vectortutst Magazine. Go ahead and check it out
you'll be so glad you did. Please help me in wishing Eric a wonderful,
blessed, and Happy Birthday!
YOU ROCK DUDE!!!!
