Here's a sneak preview of an initial sketch for a holiday greeting card series I am thinking of producing this year. I would love to have your thoughts and input in the comment section. This was done on my VAIO Paper application I use for taking notes, making lists, and generally staying organized on my laptop. I can't describe the satisfaction I get from completely erasing the task, as opposed to scratching it out with line after line of ink. Oh, how I love my OCD! I am thinking of doing 3 designs this year, maybe more, depending on time AND your interest!
I am also thinking of doing some sort of cat design, too. I have despised our little feline friends ever since I can remember waking up to the neighborhood strays laying on the hood of my first, second, and third cars. And then I bought the house that the neighborhood strays came from. (The cat hoarder.) The smells from that house still haunt me in my dreams.
I sanded the floors with a large (rented) orbital sander to get the cat urine stains out (among other things.) In a particularly bad area near the backdoor, the sander kicked up so much dust that even with a mask over my face I could feel the putrid smell of ammonia overcome me. To escape passing out from the fumes I ran outside and left the orbital sander spinning hectically in the kitchen.
Why am I telling you all of this? Because despite all of this damning evidence, I caught myself feeling warm and cuddly inside after looking at pictures of cats on the internet yesterday. You let one six-toed cat stay with you for a couple weeks and that's how it happens. Let this be a warning to the rest of you NON-CAT LOVERS. Stay strong, cats have a power like no other...
