When Cleveland magazine asked me to contribute character designs for their 10th Anniversary "Best of Cleveland Issue," I jumped at the chance. In fact, I was so excited that I took it upon myself to create a slew extra promotional graphic, like this cake illustration (I also made an illustration with "Best of Cleveland" written out in balloons, which their designers incorporated into their event logo, plus a paint splattered "BOC" graphic that they used in most of the advertisements and signage.) The magazine ordered a replica of my cake design IN REAL CAKE for this milestone anniversary party. They bakers didn't know how to match the topper, so I was happy to make it out of foam core, paint, and some giant dowel rods.
