This is so ironic because I was thinking of redoing a harlequin/amarylis series that I did a few years back. Great minds, eh?

I do love black and white checkerboard pattern. Yummy stuff.
The top one could be a corvid beak!

Cat, I love the black and white on that shade of green. It makes all the colors (and the shapes) really pop!

I think the division is really interesting too... calling me in to a shape of a shape and making me look at it from a different angle, and then looking at the whole thing whole is a real charm!

Reminded me a little of the tale of the 6 blind men and the elephant! :)

A perceptual exercise: false expectations!? Not an elephant in the dark after all!:)

Marvelous! As always!

This is fantabulous! I love the retractable eyeball, that could come in real handy :) Love the way you did this!

I love these. They remind me of a tiled courtyard wrapped up into otherworldly dimensions.

I'd never thought about the similarities between a cat and a foole, especially a wise and crafty foole who holds the king's conscience up in front of him like a mirror. What better animal to make us feel small and common?

Cool designs, Cat. But then you always do cool stuff.

But I really love your new banner...

Renee said...

I love you in every way possible. You are so wise.

Love Renee xoxo

Cat, speaking of you new banner.

Are you up to a challenge? I'm wondering if you could design a banner suitable for my own blog.

I'm thinking of a dark room with a door with a light above it and a sign reading "ROOM 235."

Maybe a long hospital corridor with door all alone at the end of it. You know, ROOM 235.

I don't remember if I've ever told you the story behind the name or not.

Just wondering if you'd be interested. I'm not asking you to do this for nothing. I'd be more than happy to pay you for your time.

Why do I ask you? Because even though I'm a conservative and you're a liberal, we can carry on a civil conversation, we can disagree without hating each other. And I like you.

Oh yeah, you do really good work too...

fredwrite said...

I've read that story, Kevin. It makes your column complete and human.

Kevin McGinty said...

Thanks, Fred. It was a tough time for my family.

I've re-posted it this week so Cat can have something to work on...

Lynne Chapman said...

Wonderful character! And the harlequin finish is the perfect choice somehow...

Ha ha ha. I really like the whimsy.
