New Illustrations and Doodles

First Coffee

I’m currently on my first glass of coffee, iced coffee, but the above picture is an accurate representation of how I currently am. If you’ve followed my art over the years, you’ll know there’s a very strong recurring theme of cats and coffee. Two things I cannot, and will not live without! I also love the spooky side of things. Though over the years my “spooky” has been more cute than boo, but I feel like with drawing on the iPad, maybe I can get a little closer to the spooky side. I tried to draw the white cat above as a ghostly kind of cat, surrounded by cobwebs, in the background hanging from the shelves and walls.

Not A Morning Ghost

Not a Morning Ghost was an idea for Twitch emotes, or rather updating my Twitch page emotes. Then I scrapped the idea but still liked the cat. Then I had the brilliant idea to try adding text again. What kind of text? Should I write it? Should I use a font? What font? I didn’t think any of the ideas worked so I scrapped the text. I need to buy some post-it notes so I can make a note to stick on a monitor, “NO TEXT.”

That’s a nope.
Cat and Jack

Another favorite theme of mine to paint is cats and autumn/Halloween. Trying a more muted approach with two kitties and pumpkins, I’m not sure I could actually paint these in acrylics, but I like the softness in the illustrations. Sometimes, I’ll illustrate things first, or doodle them, then later paint them. I’m not sure how many of my recent illustrations will make it to acrylic on wood, but there’s a chance some will be painted.

The Pumpkin Carver

As always, if you’re interested in prints of any of these illustrations, you can find them in my Teepublic Shop! Any and all feedback is welcome as well. What do you think about text on art shirts?

Iced Coffee Day

My newest paintings while I finished up the first round of pre-order ornament orders. Much iced coffee was had, which was very inspiring. luls

Fresh coffee sits on the table unattended. Are the kitties watching over it, or is one acting as a lookout, while the other plans something?

New Limited Kitties in Lopapeysa and Coffee Ornaments!

Newest ornaments for this year! There are a very limited quantity of these kitties due to them being painted on a whim. I’ll definitely get more wood slices for next year, and the clay ornaments will be back then as well!
