I have always loved the comic/pulp drawings of retro ladies.  When the magnets, dish towels, etc. came out with retro pictures of women with sarcastic comments, I was all. over. it.  (My favorite is : I finished your laundry, the ashes are in the fireplace. HA!)

Having a background in fine art and illustration, I drew my own retro/pulp lady and used it in my creative resume right when I graduated college.  I've always loved her and wanted to feature her on more things but it was hard to find the right outlet.  She's crying.  I know I could draw another one without tears, but there's just something about the first one.  I've had her for about 6 years!

I struck gold the other day.  Well, I think I did.  I am a self professed Pinterest addict.  I'm turning 30 next year (as are a lot of my friends) and I kept coming across these cute gifts made out of suckers or blow pops, that come with a sign that says "30 Sucks" or "30 Blows".  I think they are too cool.

It got me thinking and voila! I thought my retro lady would be perfect for some "30 Sucks" Birthday Party Invitations.  They made their debut in my Etsy Shop last week.  I LOVE THEM.  I can't wait to use them for my 30th Birthday.  I hope you love them too!  Only $12.50 for a digital file, print as many as you need.  Get em here
