“You have it.
You just have to believe that you have it.”
OK, so drawing expressive cat faces is easy when you cartoon ’em up, but difficult when you’re trying to adhere to their natural anatomy–especially those mouths!
But tonight Netflix brought me some nice reference in the form of Thunder and the House of Magic. There’s a nice hand-drawn sensibility to the cat’s body motion (when’s the last time we had a 3D animated cat? Bolt?), but that face, that mouth!! Cute, expressive, natural-looking!
Besides, he looks like my fiancé’s kitty, Pixel, down to the white socks!
I got this printed out at 16×20″ at Costco, so he has a mounted poster of it, woot!
Did I mention I hate drawing machinery? All those straight lines and perfect shapes are difficult for me. But I drew some here. That’s how you know it’s true love.
If you ever want to play with us, I’m AesAthena on Steam. Or maybe ASAthena, I don’t know! Look for the icon of Pussyfoot the Cat!
You could paint these for days.
I love the aesthetic and concept of this comic and wanted to let y’all know about it…It is pretty super!
Me and my friends just finished watching a copy of The Lost Room.
Here are 10 reasons you should buy a copy right now:
2) It’s only $8.00 on Amazon
Probably worth backing for the value chart alone. GENIUS!!
One of my favorite things to do is watch documentaries about creative persons–not like, the ones where they dig up all the person’s dirty laundry, but documentaries that focus on the creative contributions and background of a given creative.
The first one I ever caught–by accident–was the “Iconoclasts” episode with Tony Hawk and John Favreau.
Today at the library I walked by Vidal Sassoon the Movie and couldn’t resist grabbing it.
It was supergood–upbeat without being fawning, informative, and non-tabloidsy. Recommended.
I usually don’t draw birds. Especially ones that dance or do yoga poses.
More random shapeyness and lettercraft (I hesitate to call it calligraphy).

Quite possibly the best drawings I’ve made in years. Dedicated to the memory of Dayna Ahern, whose dog Honey inspired these.
The only thing better than looking at screenshots of G A T T A C A is listening to the soundtrack. Ooo-ee!!
