Drawing challenge #15

image

Today’s drawing challenge was to draw an infamous villain.
But I was having a really hard time thinking of a villain. The first villain I ever think of is the Shadow Man on the stranger danger sign. And according to me if you’re weird and creepy that is exactly how you should look.
But I didn’t want to draw something so creepy.
And them I remembered good old fashion comic books and so I went with a favorite villain… Catwoman. And not just any Catwoman, the super glamorous and incredibly gorgeous Julie Newmar.
And what is duplicity is she up to??? Turning little kitties to the dark side. And I know Elliott would become evil… if she fed him crunchy food.
So I should feed him before he tries to take over Gotham.

Drawing Challenge Day #4

Okay today’s’ drawing goal really threw me… because I didn’t know what it was

Veronica told me to draw a “mandala”

And much to my surprise it was not a portrait of Nelson Mandela.

It’s like a circular religious symbol. Which is not really in my ballpark of things I draw. It is also luckily for me adopted to be more of a geometric illustration that I can make without insulting peoples religions.

And although I am delightfully offensive, I keep religion and politics far from my scope of things I will make drawings about.

BUT- I do know how to draw Elliott.

And so I present the first and only cat-centric mandala on the internet*

At least it’s the only cat-centric mandala approved by Elliott.

*i do not know if that statement is true, but it probably isn’t.. I mean the internet really likes cats

Elliott needs a job!

So sometimes I imagine that my cat wants to do more than just sleep on my blanket…

I think he needs a job.

And I think I may have found one for him:

I think I could be a great tightrope walker… if only I had the balance.

Cat Mirror

I’ve been seeing a lot of mirrors lately. Mostly because all I’ve been working on for days is new fitting room prototypes.

Angled. Wall mounted. Suspended.  Oversized. Displayed with a side of granite.
I’m basically becoming the Bubba Gump of mirrors. 
But no one so far at work has suggested this one:

It’s official my brain needs this long weekend.

Cat in a Window

I haven’t posted in a very long time.

I suppose its somewhere between being too busy to even check an email… But it’s for good reasons I promise.

Today I send a simple doodle with a simple start of the week wish:

I hope that all of you are as happy as a cat in the warmest sunniest window this week.

Sittin’ on the dock of the bay

One of my favorite songs in all of life is “Sittin’ By the Dock of the Bay” by Otis Redding.

I say this because although it’s not a catchy dance song, or crafted with recorders and office supplies, it still brings a smile to my face. I used to sing it like crazy when I was a child because… Well, I was really weird. I have since grown up and I’ve done the regular things people do, I grew my hair out longer than that standard bob all little girls had, I have tried to watch Twilight, I have eaten a load of pizza…

But I don’t spend my time on the dock of the bay anymore “wasting time”…

This is why I’m made for the internet…

Party Freaking ON!

Cat Logic Vol. 1

Today good people of the internet I present you… Cat Logic:

And then if i move him off of the dress, he’s so insulted he can no longer stand to be on the ENTIRE bed… or in his kitty bed which is like 4′ away.

Everyone who has a cat, has ever been around a cat, or is currently a cat knows that this is true.

Et tu, Elliott?

My cat is being nice. Uncharacteristically so, as Elliott is the rudest cat in existence.

Usually I’m almost always at home, and he ignores me unless its time to feed him kitty crunchies. I give him attentions when he demands it (which was only about 2x a week), and then I ignore him the rest of the time. We try to live like civil roommates if you could imagine.

However, lately I have hung up my Amish shroud, and have been going out… and Elliott’s demeanor changed. Now when I get home he wants all my attention… ALL OF IT! He now greets me at the door, and cordially invites me into my house. Walks me to my room. Cries, when I close him out of the door. Now, I cannot sit and eat without him trying to crawl on my lap. I cannot go online without him sitting on my computer. I cannot sleep without him staring with his face next to my face.

This paper looks really interesting... more interesting with me sitting on it! BWAHAHA!

 

Most people would say, awww he loves you! But no, I don’t assume that he’s discovered that I am the best owner, I mean free room and board and poo removal for simply being fluffy (that is a good deal)… Or that he realizes that he could have been an alley cat, with no one to give him fish shaped crunchies, and rub his belly. I think he may be actually plotting against me, like planning on hiring a hitman to keep me from going out, or trying to see how he can make me fall down the stairs and make it look like an accident.

I’m very suspicious of him… so if anything accident like happens to me… I think it was Mr. Kitty.
