I made my Dad a birthday card featuring lyrics from the song blueberry hill. It was written in 1940 and recorded by what seems like all of the people, but we like the Louis Armstrong version. It’s so gorgeous. I remembered it because I listened to his remastered desert island discs the other day and it featured his own version of the song, and my dad and I were singing along to it and it really stuck in both of our heads. My dad is going to learn in on the guitar, as he’s a budding musician and all round chiller.
The type is painted in indian ink with watercolour blueberries. I definitely want to experiment with more hand-drawn type.
Listen to Louis’ desert island discs here, and below is the song. Happy Birthday to my dearest dad.
