Happy Belated Father's Day card
I mailed this card to my dad on Monday, July 13th. Ample time, I figured, for it to get to where it needed to be! Hopefully Canada Post will eventually get back on track. Too bad I put the date in the lower right-hand corner, otherwise this could've been a really early Father's Day 2012 card :P.
I painted this to commemorate my relatives visiting from Japan (I made them Japanese bobtails!), which happened near Father's Day. They are my mom's siblings and she hadn't seen them in years. Funnily enough, they were in Ottawa when my National Post illustration was published -- So my parents got to show it to them! Very cool.
Best of luck to everyone else who's been inconvenienced by the postal strike.
