Funny postcards of doom and gloom

Three humorous images of angst and despair

First, a meta view of the universe. All the potential, possible variations of all multiple universes are presented in a handy pocket-sized map where, at a quick glance, you can find out just where you are.

But just so you don't feel too comfortable knowing which planet you are on, know that all the empty space around you is loaded with monstrously huge threats, asteroids that careen madly about, spinning, tumbling erratically, and gleefully threatening your existence by speeding within mere miles of your precious blue dot. Enjoy. Share. Wish you were here.

And who is responsible for global warming? It's you isn't it, you sweet little kitty. Chase the ball! Chase the ball! Isn't that so cute! You've got the world in your soft furry clutches don't you! Play nice now.

Four nice niche postcards

The Police Building in Venice Post Cards

Four fresh and unique postcards from Europe

Original art postcards from faraway places

The places seem so far away now, but the drawings are fresh and original, drawn on location in Florence, Venice and Paris.

Girl in Paris was drawn from memory and a quick glance as she rolled through traffic and was gone. Galileo was happy to stand perfectly still for me, posing in his niche. And the police building watched judiciously as we ate and drank across the canal.

The promontory and coastline near Vernazza graciously moved about to make a better composition, though that is the blue.

Coffee is necessary cat mug

There might be those days of Zen clarity. There might be those days of no thought - not from any kind of enlightenment, but simply because your brain refuses to work. Sometimes there is only one solution.
Help! I can't think of anything!

Caffeine is the solution.

Black cat and stepping stones mug

Quiet. Contemplative. Long haired black cat considers. 
Sometimes you just can't speak about an image. 
What is there?

What to say? Just drink the coffee.

The mango cat mug

Are my eyes really this bad?

We continue the shamed, scorned, artistic tradition of never doing stylistically the same thing twice.

Long sleeved T-shirts now at Society6

The hot orange cat shaped variation mug

You'll need oven mitts to hold this one. I think the artwork alone would keep the coffee hot.
Every once in a while, I think I might impose some discipline on my creative stream. Never lasts. Never seem to stick with any single style for very long. I said I might try again with this shape, using it as a vessel to hold different colour and pattern ideas.

The inky black cat mug

Judiciously applied, a few filters and nostalgic memories come together to turn some original art into some original art. Here a cat rests in loaf position on a stone ledge. The tones suggest peace, security and cappucinno.

The blue cat sleeping mug

So soporific, just looking at it calms you down.

Cats and onions just don't get along

If you can't stand the smell, stay out of the kitchen.
