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!

A birthday gift for my Beau, who mains a Heavy in TF2. As it so happens, I main a Medic, making this a perfect relationship metaphor.
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!

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:
1) If you ever wondered what it’d be like if David Lynch and The Twilight Zone had a baby that could be shown in public, it would be this show.
2) It’s only $8.00 on Amazon
3) It is 3 nights’ worth of solid gold TV-14 rated entertainment
4) If it were a book it’d be unputdownable.
5) Great storytelling in here, for nerds like me who love that sorta thing.
6) Low budget effects done right. Oh so right.
7) Amazing casting, including Taub from HOUSE
8) One of the Fanning girls is in it.
9) There’s a guy named “Weasel” in it.
10) The Glass Eye
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.
Gattaca (1997) Blu-ray Screenshots
The only thing better than looking at screenshots of G A T T A C A is listening to the soundtrack. Ooo-ee!!
I love the sound of the Zen Tambour handpan for writing. Hit play on Spike Finch’s SoundCloud page and every track will play, giving your hours to enjoy the bongey-chimey goodness.
