Aquatic

I don't know what The Mother Kitty ate before her nap, but her dreams were wild!

Stripes

I'm not sure where the Kitties are here, but this was a bit inspired by Abbi Jacobson's wonderful new illustrated book, Carry This Book, for which she broke up the content with colorful striped pages. Check it out!

Ice

For this Illustration Friday topic, my first thought was to send the Kitties ice skating at Rockefeller Center. As usual, though, Johnny gave me a more interesting idea. Before I knew it, Gordon threw off his skates, ran outside, and got to work. Soon after, Mini started dancing in it. Cue Danny Elfman's theme, please....

Here's the inspiration for this drawing – the ice dance from Edward Scissorhands (in case you've forgotten where snow comes from).

Are you aching to watch this movie again now, like I am?

Nest

I know its been a while, but I apparently needed a break. I'm slowly working on all the drawings swirling in my head....

Here's a memory from Norman, who as a kitten, took meals where he could get them. He almost fit in with this family. He says they provided the best fish he ever had.

Traffic

This drawing popped into my head while listening to my iPod on the way home from yoga class. Most of the time, I have my iPod in shuffle mode, and an unfamiliar song came on that's now my current favorite: "Discipline Gets Lost in a World of Mallets" by the Jason Marsalis Vibes Quartet.

Can't you imagine the cat traffic?

Rain

This idea came to me in the middle of a recent yoga class (when I shouldn't be thinking about anything). I assume these are raindrop reflections of The Kitties' reactions to the latest storm – all while safe and dry indoors, of course.
