Cat Tale

Currently, I'm teaching my Digital Arts class how to use Adobe Illustrator.
Their assignment is to design a postage stamp. Along with an image, the stamp's value and the mythical country from which it's been issued must be present. This is the art I developed as I demonstrated Illustrator's various tools and techniques.
A special shout-out to Laurel Burch for the inspiration for this design.
Hmmmm … I just may order custom stamps.

IF … Jagged

A Tweet's shell is jagged.

My tutu is too!

And here's what happens
when I take an antihistamine with an espresso chaser.

IF … Passion

It's a two-fer! I had fun creating the vector-drawn heart and playing with color variations, although it took a lot more hours than one would suspect. During computer breaks, I drew Peet & Buttercup dancing. Later, I decided to blend them together to make a story. Why not?
