A small tabby cat with big eyes looks forlornly at the camera through the glass pane of a door.

i was gazing into Tabby's RBF and remembered my lockdown cabin fever project, starring Queen Tabby as Cubone / Medusa, with the most obnoxiously vivid colour palette possible on Flash. original is a vector image so very hi-res; zoom in for greater detail!

#mastoart #DigitalArt #cats #TabbyCat

A very colourful digital drawing of a purple tabby cat, wearing Cubone's skull and sprouting blue / orange Medusa snakes from her head. A ring with a Greek motto encircles the cat, and a stylized orange tree blooms behind it. Two swords are crossed beneath a banner at the bottom that reads 'SISTERHOOD IF THE WAYWARD AND DAMNED.' ...I don't really remember what I was thinking but I was going out of my head a little.

'aww, Tabby's looking so cute right n--'

#SlowCatIntro Day 7 Update Am I ready for a brief face to face meeting with Betty? IDK. When I smell her I don't fluff up. I cry to her at the door. Mom says Betty still gets puffed up a bit.

๐Ÿ˜บLookit me! I'm getting closer to no reaction at Betty's door! No fluff. No puff. My tail is up and in the confident ? mark position. No hissing. No flat ears. Hopefully ๐Ÿ˜บ it won't be too long now, but I think I feel less threatened. ๐Ÿˆ At least for #Today ๐Ÿ˜ธ #TabbyCat #CatsOfMastodon

Here's a cat drawing to (hopefully) improve your evening. No matter what else happens, we all need more cute cat pics, right?
If you're interested in process, art supplies used, etc., you can see the post that goes with this sketch here:

In other news, the poetry comics chapbook is getting so close to done! I think I turned a corner with it this past week. But sometimes I just gotta draw cats, you know? There are no better teachers for how to pause, relax, and calm the hell down - and I am deeply grateful for my cats' unending patience with me. And I'm SUPER grateful for the humans who are patient with me, too - I should be sure to say that! I get wrapped around the axle a lot, but I am, nonetheless, an incredibly lucky person with much and many to be grateful for.

Our son has his cats staying with us for a bit, the tabby enjoys sitting so the light from the Phillips Hue lights her up from the underside. For whatever reason, this is one of her fave spots, and she will be like this several times a day, every day.

She ends up looking like one of those evil villains from a Bond show.

Happy Caturday! This is Chloe, she feels it's important for you to know that whatever you're doing, it's inevitably not up to her standards, but she appreciates your fine effort as a bumbling, hapless human who can't help themselves.

Also yes, you may pick her up, but only for three purrs, approximately seven seconds, and then you need to set her down. Don't get attached, you sentimental fool. It's unseemly.
