Extremely Good Cause





















Another stretch for Illustration Friday, I know. My friend Bill and I have been working on several pieces each for the Berkeley-East Bay Humane Society's 2nd Annual "Purrr-casso" Art Sale and Gala, and I FINALLY finished mine. The only stipulation was that the art needed to be cat themed, so this is what I came up with. The proceeds from the show will benefit the animal shelter, which runs on donations alone. I love having the excuse to make art for a good cause....makes me feel all warm and fuzzy. Anyway, if you live in the Bay Area and like what you see, come to the show on Sunday, Nov. 4th. You can read more about it here. Hope to see you there!

Have a great weekend!

This is lovely work! I like the warm colors, the details, and especially the line work. I used to work for the SPCA...and I'm all for the animals. Good cause!

I like nice, stretchy characters you created, you have a very flowing line. Also you're great with watercolors!

Hi, my wife and I really loved what we saw here. I would love to know more about your work. I guess you must be very busy, so if you can’t answer me by e-mail or something like that, please try to say something about your technique in the next posts.
Thanks,
Paulinho.

Howdy! Do you know if they make any plugins to safeguard against hackers? I'm kinda paranoid about losing everything I've worked hard on. Any tips?
