It was Yuko's birthday on Monday! Happy (post-)birthday!

Real quick #1: If you're in NYC and free April 27th, Adam Warrock will be performing at The Delancey! He was the one who did the Call Me Johnny Wander song, and later on we designed his t-shirt. Def drop in - click through for details!

Real quick #2 - if you follow Yuko's Tumblr you caught the 80s Storm/Pokémon mashup. It just got featured on Project Rooftop, a website dedicated to superhero redesigns:

It's a rad site, show 'em some love!

This has been Yuko's birthday of cakes! At Monday art group our pal L baked Yuko a funfetti cake with homemade funfetti (sprinkles baked into the cake). John was gone to Rochester over the weekend, and while he was there he also baked Yuko a cake, which he drove back. It's a well-traveled cake, a cake that's seen a bit of the world. Here are photos of the Carl Sagan cake:

I am both frightened and jealous of that cake... I once made Rubix's Cube cookies for my ex, I was proud.

Cosmic Soup Birthday!

Why is it spelled YUKQ?

Blame COSMOS.

Comment by Happy (not verified) Tue, 04/26/2011 - 17:36

Much credit must be given to Yuko for her valiant re-enaction, but her greyscale art was unable to do it full justice

A lemon birthday cake, Carl

I can't begin to even comprehend how awesome that cake is. And I mean that in the Old Testament, Moses parting the red sea definition of awesome.

Happy Birthday

Sagan and Apple? *cough*

Sagan vs. Attenborough

Comment by dave x (not verified) Tue, 04/26/2011 - 19:36

I kind of dont like carl sagan that much because i tried to watch the cosmos, after i had watched all of 'planet earth' and it was just some dood talking without any really cool pictures, and most of it was not even about space, he was talking history and stuff. i wanted to see those cool stars forming pictures and whatnot

belated happy birthday yuko!

I'm going to see a burlesque show at The Delancy tonight thats going on at the same time as Adam Warrock. I wonder if its in separate rooms or going on on the same stage. Are you guys going? I might see you there ^_^

Birthdays and stuff

Comment by Number Seven (not verified) Wed, 04/27/2011 - 15:46

My birthday's today! cool. Also, because of an earlier comic, I have to ensure you guys have seen this, even though I bet you have.
http://shirt.woot.com/ look at it today! tomorrow will be too late!

Also happy birthday Yuko.

Comment by Number Seven (not verified) Wed, 04/27/2011 - 15:47

Also happy birthday Yuko. Easily in my top five artist-type people.
(I don't actually rank the top 5. They're just the top five. Seems more diplomatic that way).

Happy B-Day

Happy (late) Birthday Yuko!
Hope you enjoyed yourself ^_^

Also, John outdid himself with the cake :x

Not wanting to detract from

Comment by Anonymous (not verified) Thu, 04/28/2011 - 08:53

Not wanting to detract from what is quite possibly the best cake ever, but wouldn't it be awesome if it had been an apple pie with the same decoration?

xD

Comment by sadfulness (not verified) Wed, 05/04/2011 - 10:27

Awesome cake is awesome. But I kind of agree with quarksparrow -- apple pie would have been EVEN MORE AWESOME. Did you have to start by inventing the universe, or did making cake instead get you out of having to?
