I’m going to blame this idea on all of the Urbex channels I watch on Youtube. It’s amazing and sad how many ‘time capsules’ are left to rot. Houses left fully furnished, as though the owners just walked out. Most of the time I don’t hear the back story on the homes, either Urbexers don’t want to share for safety of the property reasons, or they just don’t know. Either way, the amount of neat old televisions left behind left an imprint on me…”Put a cat on it!” Today’s illustration then happened.
As a side note, I love to live vicariously through these urban and abandoned explorers. I once drove about 3 hours north to Dansville, NY to go explore an abandoned site, but upon arrival noticed all the sheriff’s notices to keep out. I called the sheriff and asked for permission to photograph and he was super nice, said he would if it was theirs, but it was privately owned. I’d make a terrible explorer. The second I see “no trespassing” I leave. hehe. I’ll link below the Jackson Sanatorium that I went to explore. Sadly I only got a few photos from a distance.
Happy Caturday! I made a new illustration of a kitty who has had one too many donuts with his morning coffee! In his defense, they were very tasty donuts! You can find this illustration on many items over in my Society6 shop!
