Ogden Nash Greeting Cards

I grew up reading Ogden Nash’s “Zoo” which is a compilation of punny poems about animals and insects. For my hand lettering class I chose to turn three of my favorite poems into greeting cards. Everything that appears on the cards are hand-drawn.

 

The Fly

The Lord in His wisdom made the fly,

And then forgot to tell us why.

 

The Cow

The cow is of bovine ilk;

one end is moo, the other is milk.

 

The Eel

I don’t mind eels

Except as meals.

And the way they feels.
