Isn’t it funny that at Christmas something in you gets so lonely for – I don’t know what exactly, but it’s something that you don’t mind so much not having at other times.

Cemetery Cats

Artist quote: “there are hundreds of cats living in a cemetery of Sao Paulo…resting on the tombs…” ~ poivre

Lafayette Cemetery is located in Historical Gardens District. New Orleans, Louisiana. Location used in Anne Rice novels.  Lafayette Cemetery Cat by SalemCat

From what I’ve found there are many feral cats living in cemeteries. Perhaps it’s the warmth of the sun on the stone that attracts them to sit on the grave markers…or perhaps it’s something else altogether….

Illustration Friday on Monday – Clumsy

Posted in Cartoons, Illustration with tags , , , , , , , on January 25, 2010 by Mj Rains

This was a tough word this week.  All I could think about was a one of my cartoon character drawings to describe the word clumsy.  My Continuum teen staff suggested I draw Bella, from the Twilight series, since she’s clumsy throughout the story, and I considered it.  But this is where I ended up:  with Hank from my Hank and Shadow cartoon series in a not so graceful position.  Hope you enjoy it.
