I had a busy week and not much time to draw, so here’s a quick sketch of the Eeyore Statue in Eastwoods Park:
The plaque reads: “This statue commemorates the original Eeyore’s Birthday Party held in Eastwoods Park in May 1964 and is dedicated to Prof. James Ayers, Lloyd W. Birdwell, Jr. and Jean Craver, whose inspiration began a unique Austin tradition. March 2007.”
Eeyore’s Birthday Party outgrew Eastwoods Park in 1974 and is now celebrated at Pease Park. It’s a big event every year. Costumes, drum circles, drugs, good times.
