Happy Birthday Card is a mass produced greeting card from Hello Studios, Inc. featuring Nate's drawing. In 1978, Nate participated in an "art-in" event at a Famous-Barr department store in St. Louis, Missouri. The event was sponsored by Shelli Lipton of Hello Studios, Inc. and allowed children to create drawings which could become mass produced greeting cards. Hello Studios selected Nate's drawing for a Happy Birthday Card and he became a published artist at the age of 4. Nate’s card became part of the Children's Art Collection and sold for 0.50 cents at national retailers.
