Kitten with a Whip

Just wanted to see if you were paying attention.


The Shy Kitten has spoken.

It's amazing what I can get done when I'm not at work.
I printed this poster on my Epson R1800 at home (love you Epson, you're the best!) on 13x19 glossy paper and I have to say it looks pretty damn adorable. The font makes it look kind of Scholastic-y and retro. Who remembers the Scholastic Book Mobile? And Dynamite magazine? Oh man, do I feel old now. Wow.

Thanks to all of you who offered sage advice as to what the kitten would say to MJ's kindergarten class. In the end, I morphed a bit of what Cartooncharacter and Iasa commented. Hopefully that kitten is still around Chinatown somewhere and I can pay it some royalties, or give it a can of tuna.


ps.: If anyone is interested in purchasing a Shy Kitten poster, let me know. I'm totally intrigued by the idea of actually selling my work someday!

Can so relate! Am currently feeding (and trying to find a home for) 3 kittens and a mommy that gave birth under our house a few months ago... they are certainly shy but love the toys and capnip I put on the porch for them.
Great photo!

You did a great job...it is both scholastic and fine art!
How many film festivals are there in San Francisco? Wonderful city, something interesting all the time!
