True story: I finished detailing his face, looked at it, and started laughing.
Our pet cat, Pixel, dressed as a ninja…lurkin’….and smackin’ down spiders. (In reality, Pixel J. Cat prefers to dismember grasshoppers that errantly hop into our house and leave them for Mommy to discover later on.)
Whoo! My latest story, A Gingersnap Cat Christmas, just hit 10,000 words! Since I want it finished by Thanksgiving, I’ve been trying to write on it even on days when I’m Not Feeling It™. So far, it’s working! Even on my argleblargle days I’m managing between 700-1400 words an hour. Stay tuned to see if I manage this audacious goal!
This took me all day to “ink” (I used an 8B pencil) and color (in Krita) and put together (PhoShoCS2). You’ll have to tell me if it was worth it! To my delight, the finished expressions turned out just as good as my ruff Sharpie sketch!

Myra the cat doesn’t care what time of year it is—as long as there’s wet food in her bowl, she’s happy. But her widowed mistress is struggling to get through her first Christmas alone. Good thing Myra’s got a plan—but for it to work, she’ll need to ask her arch-enemy for help!
Can Myra overcome her selfishness and bring her owner a Christmas that’s merry and bright?
The Purrfect Christmas is a family-friendly short story full of humor, heart, and a lot of fur! Read one of the twelve chapters each night before Christmas (and the epilogue on Boxing Day) for a fun new family tradition!

A couple drawings from 2013 I never uploaded. That year’s Christmas was lousy and I captured it in the cat. The other is “Gavin Snowman” named after my nephew (who had a giant smile as a baby).
