Adorable cute cartoon ghost cat wants your body

Looking particularly fetching on the torso of a headless model, Ghost Cat floats across your haunted psyche amongst an all pervasive purring, seeking a body to sleep upon, a home to haunt.

That asteroid didn't fall! It was deliberately thrown!

I follow lowflyingrocks @lowflyingrocks on Twitter. They post delightful tweets of when asteroids fly by Earth, generally after the huge erratic threats to existence have passed. So they establish a basic level of anxiety that you can't do anything about, a constant existential threat that you can't fix. Still it's amusing and alarming to see the frequency with which these monsters come so close.

The little dark heart floats mug

Not at all the same as yesterdays post, no. The scale is all different and the precious, bug-like, like-abilty of this little floating valentine belies any sense that this heart has any idea of where its going.

Oh, I can be a sentimental old fool.

The path of the heart mug

A small valentine heart followed by a dotted line trail of its path. Where does it wander? Where has it been? Where will it go?

A map would be useful, no?

The blue cat washing his foot

It would be great to be able to upload linked images from already uploaded sources at G+. I posted about three images about the progress of this one on 13 Sep 2014 Progress of a sketch through Paper to, in the final, Procreate on the iPad.
It's interesting to see a bit of the process and sequence of the drawing. The white pillow pops the foreground depth much better.

I'm washing my foot. Do you have a problem with that?

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.
