late night kitten

I woke up and found this doodle next to my bed. It feels like someone had left me a present. I completely forgot that I scribbled it last night, desperately hoping to fall asleep.  :)

Starting the day with kittens, tea, Bon Iver and Paris in May!

so beautiful

I've spent a big part of the night drawing with my 0.1mm rotring and pale pastel color pencils on small sheets of brown paper, and now, in the daylight, I can see how much my style has changed. Some ten years ago, I used to draw on B0 paper, attached to a wall, because I'd flip any easel. I liked big chunky chalks, and long flowing lines to express movement.
I don't have any of my old drawings, and this is the only photo of any of them that I have, and the only one that still exists, thanks to my good friend, who made me not throw it away. She liked it and so she got it.

Now I miss that feeling of freedom and space that I had drawing back then, but I would never use the same colors.

This morning, I stumbled on an amazing video. It's an animated short, “Thought of You“, by Ryan Woodward. It has everything I love! It's breathtaking.

Don't you think?

This is my illustrationfriday chicken.
I did another drawing a couple of days ago (my previous post), but I liked thinking about chickens, so I didn't post it, to make myself do another drawing.
Chickens are cool :)

first date

I had that phrase going through my head for days... "you're always being so cagey".... I think it must be from some film I've been watching just before falling asleep. I wish I could remember the film.

Dr. Kat

My cat's been feeling a bit poorly these days. He'll be fine, he just had too many visits to his vet, and he's still getting jabs. He hates it. He hates going to the surgery, he hates his vet, and all the nurses.They're amazingly nice to him, and kind and gentle, but he's a wild little tiger, and would not be handled or even touched unless he wants it, especially not by strangers.

It's still breaking my heart to see him meow and complain, so I thought it would be nice to give him back some power and control. This drawing is for him.

just another family

We care about our kitties as if they were human babies.
I wonder ...do they see us as cat parents.

raccoons are good friends

breakfast raccoon
dessert raccoon

strange things

Isn't it frustrating ...

When you do something good, and nobody sees you doing it, it's a miracle
when something bad happens, and you can't prove that you didn't do it...

At night

In the picture, looking from left to right:
Sally, someone who doesn't look like me at all, Cathy and Paula
A friend told me to draw myself at the computer.
I don't look that much like the girl, but they do... I mean .. they do look like them... and they think I don't know they're there, so I pretend not to, but I can see them ... all the time... in the corner of my eye... I wish they'd tell me their names... Until they do, I'll call them (from left to right) Sally, Cathy and Paula... maybe these girly names will finally make them speak up.
