Nine Cats is a winner at Crated

Paper by 53 and CanvasPop teamed up for a contest. Here is a winning submission featured on the front page of Crated. Yes, that is my Nine Cats in a grid drawn in Paper.

Nine cats

Seven little cats in the grass


It’s been a week of tired. Sometimes I despair that so much is on the edge. I have no work held back, no posts queued up, no drawings hovering.

Then you just make a mark, and something happens, and you just follow it. So this is fresh – last night – and with no idea what is over the edge of the precipice of tomorrow that I can see.

This is so damned whimsical I wish I could bottle it.

Cat drawings up at Pinterest

Just put up a number of cat drawings at Pinterest.

Finally coming down to the last days of this head cold. It’s been a battle between me and the cats for nap space on the couch. In these last few days, I’m happy to secede the battle.

Where can I find your free ebooks and stuff? Hmmm?

I can haz free cat books?

I’m switching out stuff from Dropbox to Google Drive. The eight wallpapers I posted earlier have a new home, and all the free ebooks, cats and landscapes are also there.

The 100 cats (nearly 150 cats only $0.99!) ebook is still at iTunes, along with the also free ebook, 20 Monsters.

Perspective cat field

So much anymore, I can’t say that I use any one single app for drawing. I am pretty sure this was done in Pen & Ink, but then…
… Over to the Mac to Pixelator for scaling and duplicating, back to the iPad for various filters in Popsicolour, over to proCreate for layering and compositing… Back to the Mac for export from the photo stream. Posted from the iPad photo stream to here.

A cat collection


Well, the new ProCreate dropped out of the cloud this morning with tons of new brushes and capabilities. I moved some older images out of some other art apps. Deleted some, but still cling to some others. Brushes, Art Studio and Sketch Club still have some interesting brushes. Really, though, will I ever use the text layer? I tell myself I might. Likely. Hah. They are in danger of being voted off the home screen.

Paper by 53 is still on my art app screen. The silly sketch above is the latest fool-around. I bought some styluses. Broke down. The Jot classic’s precision almost perfectly compensates for the lack of zoom in Paper. The black outline of the cats was drawn with the pen tool. The tiny scribbled dots for the eyes are almost precisely where I want them. Even then, zoom would have given me precisely what I wanted.

Cat from the jungle of your mind.


I’ve been playing in an iPad app called LetterMPress. The touch and manipulation controls are a bit fussy. The printing process is simulated too, and quite delightfully ignores whatever expediencies might evolve out of a purely digital process. Like printing class back in art school.

The medium size…

The medium sized 22 cats book measures roughly 6 by 8 inches, or 15 by 20 cm. It contains the same 22 images as the small 22 cats book which I distributed as a promotion piece. You can download a free PDF of the small book. The medium sized 22 cats book available from me is $25.00 including shipping and handling. There are only ten of them – a few strategically distributed at finer Über Cool shops everywhere.

The 22 cats book features a selection of images from the ebook series 100 catsavailable on the iTunes bookstore.
