SPOTTED/By my kitties.

No matter what I do, or how quietly, or stealthly I think i'm doing it,
they know, they wait. I don't know how many times i've told pinky
and cc [short for calendar cat], not to light candles when i'm gone.
But you know cats, they pretty much do as they please. I did this in Jan.

Great illo, you have captured just the right feeling of the cats being alert. Awesome shadow dancing with colours, wov ! I have experienced the same, I have just felt the cat fast asleep by my feet and suddenly, there he is on my night table watching quietly.

I love everything about this!

This is great! I can't help but smirk everytime I see a cat drawing because I keep think of the Robin Williams 'Pretty Kitty' skit. If you haven't seen it, do yourelf a favor and rent his recent stand-up show. Very funny.

Anyway, but to the subject at hand. I love the mood you set with this. Very mysterious, just like a cat. Sneaky even. Great job!

HARDWAX said...

Thanks dor your comment natialove, these are digital originals, I don't paint over photographs and almost never take my ideas from photographs.

I like the sense of the cats watching and being independant in the night.

Lori Witzel said...

Hah!!! Mine just order anchovy pizzas. Lovely witty caption and sweetly-lit post.

kate said...

Hey very nice, love the lighting on this. :D

modroom said...

Like the atmoshere of this. Cosy and cat mysterious. Cats can do anything, they just choose not to a lot of the time.

carla said...

Gorgeous light and dark, and wonderful feline figures too! Yep, they do as they please, but we wouldn't have them any other way!

I can't believe someone else has a Calendar Cat!

Okay. Maybe it's not that hard to believe. Still - We used to have a pair of domestic longhairs who were so cute together, we used to refer to them as the "calendar cats". Their names were actually Eggman and Walrus.

(Nice illustrations, too. I really like the western ghosty one - spooky!)
