Actually quite a stylish chair.

The old tuxedo

October 16, 2014

Our 17 or 18 year old tuxedo sleeps a lot. It’s hard to get a pose where he doesn’t look dead.

Big blue balloon

October 14, 2014

Huge blue word balloon, tiny cat, tiny


Paper by 53 introduced a collaborative social network in it’s latest version. Someone posts an image, someone extends it. This word balloon was posted. I added the little cat, and the tiny word.

Here are some other images I’ve been busy posting at Mix, by 53.

This is the week that was.

from Crucifixion by Bonaventurar Berlinghieri

I love the elegant and sophisticed stylization in this image by Berlinghieri, a relatively obscure artist of the Gothic. Pg 45 of the Uffizi Gallery by Guinti. There’s so much to see at the Uffizzi. I might like to concentrate more on these next time, if, again, I get a chance to go through. I certainly enjoyed a lot of the peripheral images, the demons, the boats, the beasts at the edges of the main work.

Drawing of Botticeli

September 27, 2014

Getting around to drawing from the catalog bought at The Uffizi last summer. Recalling that you need a fan and bottles of water to traverse the building. And lots of time, and some idea of what you want to see before you go in.

Seeing from a book is not the same thing as seeing while being there. Drawing is however much more pleasant.

Here is ghost cat without my moaning.

Ghost cat. Links and thoughts

September 24, 2014

:-(  working in this desktop post box is troublesome. I want to put this text BELOW the image. I can’t seem to place the image after the fact, or insert my cursor below it to put text there.

Below this is the pasted link to this same image on G+ and Tumblr, which is very extremely easy to post from mobile, both through the G+ app, and the app, Paper, in which the drawing was made.

Photo The Tumblr link

More and more I am sharing directly to other places from my iPad. This is far more tedious to do from the WordPress app and still bound in multiple clicks in the desktop. Despite this, this site gets its continuing handful of ten to twenty or so hits a day. Tumblr followers (about 100) continue to grow, G+ followers (about 300) and cartoon life followers (about 300) continue to grow, despite my neglect.
