Retirement - part 1

A work colleague is retiring next week after a long career and I made a retirement card but as a book with pages so there is plenty of room to sign as its got to go round 6 offices across the North of England!  This is the first page in the series and features Professor Dumnkopf

I've used a hole punch before gluing two sheets of the lightly hammered card together to make a sturdy page (the reverse is free to be written upon), created the text on my computer, layered it onto black card and then added it to the page.  The image has been coloured with Promarkers and I've added glossy accents on his glasses and then added him to the card with foam pads for depth.

I'd like to enter the following:
