Know a space fanatic with an upcoming birthday? Spacey Birthday is perfect for the astronaut, or wannabe space traveler, in your life! We sat down with the artist behind Spacey Birthday, Amelia, to see what inspired her to create such an out of this world card.
1. Where did the idea for this card come from?
I may or may not have been partially inspired by a certain film that came out last summer about astronauts in space. I also love space, so any excuse to draw stars and I’m there.
2. Have you ever wanted to be an astronaut?
I wanted to be an astronaut when I was in 5th grade. After realizing I probably needed to know more math than basic arithmetic, I quickly shifted my focus to art.
3. What’s the first thing you would do in space?
The first thing I would do in space is PANIC. Then I’d ask myself how I got there. Then I would realize I could do nothing to change my situation, so I’d sit back and enjoy the view.
4. As Gravity is nominated for several Oscars, do you think this deserves the Academy’s attention too?
Yes, in fact maybe people should just watch this card over and over again for 2 and a half hours. Gets as intense and dizzying as CG Sandra Bullock, trust me.
