Cute. Nice use of white space. Like the Bernard is so lively red against all the whites and grays.

Catnapping said...

get thee behind me, hellcat! you blasphemer! there's no one living in that teapot! it's the teapot itself who talks to boiled egg!

Mademoiselle Princesse said...

Come to my home, Bernard! I have lots of nice candies for you!!!! *pass the salt*

Catnapping said...

you keep that shaker away from my tail, princess!

steve said...

Wow, how cool is this? Love the way the bird is holding the spout with its foot.

bookbabie said...

Oh, your birds are so sweet Cat I always wish they were real so I could hang with them:)

Switchsky said...

no one at all?

I think Bernard must learn to be patient.

Poor Bernard!

May you safely navigate through the ghosties, goblins, sprites, trolls, imps, hobgoblins, ghouls, banshees, poltergeists, specters, spirits, witches, and warlocks wandering the earth this night.

i am like your red bird he he-i do llok down the spout....but i like the direction of the strokes and the colors just perfect.

by the way, i've got very few chocolates hu hu

I love how the birdy is holding onto the teapot. Made me chuckle.

fat B said...

Another fun illustration. I thought he was checking to see if there was any coffee left.

I can believe a bird brain would think it was a peephole.

Janice said...

Oh tis very lovely.... like the splash of colour on bernard and the line quality is great!

Gawpo said...

The Italian word for the plural of cup is bicchieri. And I always think of a bird's beak when I hear it. And then there is this wonderful drawing of such a beak on such bicchieri. Perfect!

I wish you would read me the whole story.

Truly beautiful, you are Cat.

Heehee, did you make it through to the other side?

Your illustration is a tweet!

Don said...

Probably my favorite post of the week! I like that it doesn't follow the traditional Halloween look, and I like that the bird is the only colored part. Good use of non-color! :-)

scribblesk said...

Beautifully done!

Mick said...

This is hilarious - words and image. It's the look of shock on Bernard's face that cracks me up, like he can't believe there's no one in there! It would be perfectly natural for a bird to enter through there to attain access to such a beautiful nest as this after all, wouldn't it? :D

The party was over
even dormouse was gone
he crawled out of the teapot
and got scratched on the lawn

studio lolo said...

I didn't see this last week. I heart Bernard!

hipparchia said...

bernard is adorable! and very smart of him to stack the cups like that so he could reach the peephole.

Rrramone said...

Silly Bernard.

Michelle Lana said...

Camplin said...

Jack said...

No thanks Camplin. BWARK!

ValGalArt said...

tsduff said...

Bernard was my husbands name. He would have enjoyed your post.

Jana Bouc said...

You are amazing! I love your work and your very "odd neighbor" brain -- so quirky and fun!
