I was reading a comment on a website where someone was trying to be funny (I think) and said they like to pretend that their bed is an island that they and their cats are stuck on it. So here is my rendition because that was too funny not to draw. Cats, of course, would... Continue Reading →
I decided that instead of a regular collar Duncan should wear a tie everywhere. And then he can be a business man (business cat?) since he's already wearing a tie. Or maybe a lawyer. Whatever brings in more money is good for me.
So I have a horrible secret to reveal. I cause my husband gratuitous injuries. Not like in a secret abusive relationship way, but either directly or indirectly, I cause Adam injuries on a fairly regular basis. For example, this weekend we decided to try cross-country skiing because the park system had a rental for boots... Continue Reading →
So I've been drawing on paper while I wait for my stylus to arrive and I kind of like it more. Except for the scanning. I don't know why but I seriously hate scanning stuff - for some reason it just irks me. So anyway, I got a kitten daily calendar (go figure, right?) and... Continue Reading →
So my dumb ol' drawing tablet stylus is still broken and I had to order one from Amazon. Boo. But at least I'll soon be able to do better digital drawings than I did today with my mouse. What is this, you ask? I'm sitting on the couch, making a dumb face, with the "cats"... Continue Reading →
Sorry for all the caps up there but I AM EXCITED! This marks the end of the first year of notacrazycatlady and also the conclusion of my post a day challenge. For those of you from the beginning, you know that I have boldly accepted the challenge (from WordPress.com and I suppose myself) to post... Continue Reading →
I'm not quite sure why I'm so into dog drawings lately, but here's another! This one is in ink on paper....since my tablet stylus is acting up. So this funny fat dog is all dressed up with nowhere to go.
So I had a lovely time with my grammy today. She lives like 10 minutes from work so I stopped by to hang out for a bit and we went out for a bite to eat. I introduced her to Jimmy Johns and we both got my favorite...the Beach Club. Turkey, provolone (I think), lettuce,... Continue Reading →
Does anyone else have the problem where they believe their couches to have some sort of magical powers? It's like as soon as I sit near/on one with a moderate amount of relaxation, I'm immediately cast under its spell for a minimum of an hour, usually 3. What the heck? True story.
So browsing Reddit, as usual, I come across this little dog named ChaCha (awesome...I love it) who has three legs. The owner decided to outfit with another one. Sort of.... But this pup was so cute that the creepiness of a misplaced baby arm just seemed to meld with the cuteness of the doggy and... Continue Reading →
So I took this photo on our honeymoon in Maine and I decided...you know, since I'm not a crazy cat lady....that it would be fun to pretend the cats were there, too. Since Smudge loves to get in the way of things he is photobombing a lovely shot of Duncan dipping his toes in the... Continue Reading →
I really hope Jimmie Chew doesn't get sick of me drawing pictures from his blog, but I just love them. They crack me up. Here is a basket chewing cat cattoon. On another fun note, in just a few short days (10 maybe? I can't recall) I will have posted a blog post everyday for... Continue Reading →
You remember that crazy owl I cartooned from a crazy owl photo? Here's the painting version. My friend made an innocuous comment on Facebook about how he would hang the cartoon up in his house....so I decided to just do it. He'd better hang it up next to the crystal bear holding a heart we... Continue Reading →
My little brother and sister got remote controlled helicopters and they were a big hit for everyone to play with. However, JoJo the dog also found them....intriguing. I can't really say how JoJo felt because he fervently began barking at it, following it, retreating from it, AND madly wagging his tail at it. I can't quite determine what... Continue Reading →
This is a post live from a family holiday party! I am a leaning cat because I am a bit tipsy, haha. There are a lot of family members here and I don't want to eavesdrop on their conversations so that's why I made them say "blah blah"...not that they just blah blah it up. 🙂
So yesterday my brother and I talked about tobogganing and I thought it might be fun if Duncan and Smudge went with me.
So it's late and I hadn't done a cattoon yet and I made a silly one about sleeping in and then I went to put it in the blog post and it had somehow not been saved and this is the second or so time this has happened so I made a cartoon about pouting... Continue Reading →
At work we had an ugly sweater contest. I decided to make my own. Here is my recipe for a delightful ugly sweater, which was actually a sweatshirt. Get a plain ol' sweatshirt (I got mine in the men's section at Target for $7.50!). Use puffy paint to create goofy looking snowmen who are sad... Continue Reading →
So I am in the middle of making an incredibly awesome holiday sweater, which should be ready for a post tomorrow I think, so here is a dumb drawing of a mini me getting super excited for this gum I tried today which totally tasted like apple pie. My fantasy of living in Willy Wonka's... Continue Reading →
So my Aunt Kathy was in town not too long ago and we took a family photo. Unbeknownst to me, apparently it was a bunny-ear-required photo and I didn't get the memo. I can't share the actual photo since I don't have it (Aunt Kathy, if you're reading this, send that thing my way!) so... Continue Reading →
So I was showing students this neat online whiteboard website and they asked me to draw Santa. So I did. Comments included, "He's creepy," "It's good but it's not good" (maybe 'cause it's creepy?), and "I like it." I guess that isn't so bad. Thanks, 7th graders; your 12- and 13-year old insights are invaluable and... Continue Reading →
Duncan totally winks at me. It might just be a one-sided blink but I like to think it's his way of saying hello and that he loves me.
Yes, I'll admit it. Sometimes Adam and I make up songs about mundane everyday things. Today Adam was singing about the cats. Specifically Duncan. Pretty much because Duncan was looking ridiculous and desperate but as if he was trying to hide it. We decided that it was his way of getting food since he knows... Continue Reading →
Adam's parents' cat does not really...um...fit in with our cats. They are a bit brutish with him. However, we had a breakthrough with the cats. They were all amicably near each other within a foot when Adam and I gave them all snacks. Could this be the beginning of a change around here?
So this was an interesting weekend. I got to go see the ballet The Nutcracker with Ken (yay!) because Lee was sick (boo!) and I went in his place. So then we found out this morning that Lee was sick not because of a stomach-bug but because of a stomach fight. His appendix was... Continue Reading →
The other day Smudge was climbing on me to get to some food on a tv tray - way to go Duncan teaching your brother dumb tricks and bad habits. Adam tried to gently dissuade him with a wee shove but Smudge wasn't ready to budge. So he just casually pierced my fleshy quad with... Continue Reading →
So I'm really into this video game, L.A. Noire. If you don't know about it, it's a pretty revolutionary game where they did all this crazy technology stuff to get real actors to act the parts of the characters and therefore have remarkably life-like game people. Because of this, you have to read the faces... Continue Reading →
So I found this crazy owl baby picture on Reddit and decided it tickled my fancy. So I didn't quite get it right, but I still think it's pretty funny. Adam says it's a little too dark for my normal style but I like it. I guess a crazy owl baby can spread its... Continue Reading →
So I have been busy these days because I think I want to start going to craft shows....make that a craft show....I've never been before. But I've made baby onesises and cool little magnets, and painted stools for friends and family before, so I figured why not try it out with strangers? I... Continue Reading →
I was watching the show Prime Suspect, which I really like, and was just sketching the main lady character (I don't know her name) and decided to turn it into a Rapunzel thing (Why? I dunno. How did this turn out this way? I dunno, either.). So I made this into a new Rapunzel who... Continue Reading →
So this weekend, I tried to make a friendship with a Lemontini. Actually, it was called a Lemon Drop. And I made friends with several of them. And it was actually a good short term friendship. There was one that took a bit of a spill but other than that it was good. Until the... Continue Reading →
Yeah, this was kinda a rough little drawing, so ignore that. The story is better. Last night Duncan fell asleep on me, which he seldom does. I put a squish pillow on him (otherwise known as a Teddy Log) since cats love having stuff on them, right? So in the middle of the night I... Continue Reading →
Adam and I went to my dad's house and my little sister ran up and said we needed to come see the bunny eating her salad. It was just pretty cute. So here's a cartoon about it.
Happy Thanksgiving! Gobble Gobble! True story: My great friend Emily was studying abroad in Scotland and I went to visit her for a week. She showed me pictures of the Thanksgiving feast they were having at her dorm, which she set up for all her friends. My first thought (and perhaps I said it out... Continue Reading →
When I was in middle school I really liked cats (big surprise, huh?) and I also liked fairies. I know. So anyway, I may have chosen the name FairyCat (actually, FaiRyCaT or something like that) that I used as my email and instant messenger name. Not so bad for middle school but I might have... Continue Reading →
Party's are a blast...especially when everyone starts drawing (please read this in the cheesiest voice and most sarcastic tone possible for full impact). But we actually did have a ton of fun. Ken and Lee had a little get together and drawing commenced somehow. Lee let me draw a few fun party memories on his... Continue Reading →
Duncan and Smudge have been on a diet, but this trend started waaaaay before that. Duncan and Smudge are if nothing, excellent measurers. They can tell if they have been fed less than a desirable amount and are quick to protest. Tonight I gave them half a can of Fancy Feast instead of the typical one can... Continue Reading →
I went upstairs today to find Duncan just causally lounging on the countertop staring at the oven. I know he was just making sure it didn't overcook. What a good member of the household...
