Dave Perillo
Artist
United States
Dave Perillo was born in 1974, the same year Wham-O introduced the Slip N’ Slide…coincidence? In 1st grade, Dave revealed in his autobiography “Me Book”, that when he grew up he would like to be Ziggy. This ambition was deflated by 2nd grade when he realized that A) Ziggy is not real, B) Ziggy is completely bald, and C) Ziggy wears no pants. While the thought of going throughout life sans pants was somewhat appealing he decided to pursue his second choice, a career in art. Dave draws inspiration for his work from many of the following sources: 1950’s Sci-Fi Movies, Charles Schultz, Jim Flora, Ray Harryhausen, Roy Lichtenstein, Jim Henson, Hanna Barbera, The Twilight Zone, Alfred Hitchcock & Character Advertising Icons. Dave currently resides in the burbs of Philly, works as an illustrator, believes that bowling is the sport of kings and a bag of Swedish Fish is a seafood dinner.

Oh...



It's your happy birthday



Here's your happy birthday song



And on your happy birthday,



Nothing can go wrong




I can tell that you're all grumpy



'Cause you've been around a while



Just because you're old and frumpy



Doesn't mean you shouldn't smile



Because...




It's your happy birthday



Here's your happy birthday song



And your birthday best be happy,



'Cause you won't be around for long!




 Oh...



It's your happy birthday



Here's your happy birthday song



And your birthday won't be happy,



'Til you all sing along!



Everybody!




I can tell that you're all grumpy



'Cause you've been around a while



Just because you're old and frumpy doesn't




Mean you shouldn't...




What's that I see? Ohhhhhhhh...!!!




Smileeeeeeee~!
