I drew this little guy in spirit of St. Patrick’s Day. Most of my life I have lived unaware of this holiday, I only learned of it in my early twenties when I made friends with a young fellow named Colin, who loved celebrating St. Paddy’s. I’ll let you in on a secret though; his love for celebrating it may coincide with his love for a good beer. When I moved to New York City in 2010, I was surprised to find how popular it is over here. There’s even a St. Paddy’s Day Parade!
This year I read up on Saint Patrick a bit. Did you know that the original St. Patrick’s Day color was actually blue? Apparently it grew to green over the years from the colour of the Shamrock which is supposedly a ‘Holy Trinity’ symbol.
