Today is the birthday of one of my beautiful, crazy talented, strange, awesome, creative friends. The amazingAlice Bizarre Make Up.
Instead of a card, she’s getting my (absolutely great) online banner thing and a message:
To my amazing Alice,
I hope you’ve had a truly fantastic birthday, I hope the friends and family around have made you feel loved and appreciated.
Over the years I’ve known you, you have grown as an artist and as a person, as I have grown to love you. Our work together has always been the best, and I hope we get to work together and watch each other’s style evolve and improve for years to come.
I want to say, thank you. Thank you for being the generous, hard working, dedicated friend and creative, without you many of my shoots over the years wouldn’t have been half as good as they are with your touch. You don’t get thanked half as often as you should, and I am sure I am as guilty of this as the others whose shoots you’ve put so much work and effort into.
Thank you for being you, and happy f*cking birthday.
Love Lauren-Becki Rowlands
