There is a fun group on Facebook called “This cat is assembled INCORRECTLY.” When I discovered them a month or so ago, their group banner was similar to the cartoon above with the IKEA logo…except with a photograph pasted in. I knew I could do better…so, voilà! I made them this.
Okay, maybe the cat isn’t an Aby…or maybe it is.
So, on our way to see Frozen 2 downtown, I couldn’t help but notice a power box decorated with the very lovely Castle Cats.
I had no idea what they were or what they referred to, and come to find out that they’re part of a video game designed by PocApp Studios, based right here in Skövde!
How cool is that? I am not much of a gamer, but I may have to check out this game!
Björn and I did the Pub Quiz last week (mainly because they’re having a 25% off food deal for members), and we did all right; we tied for third place. And we won paper plates (which is way more awesome than it sounds)!
But as always, the best part of Pub Quiz was the fact that they gave me a pencil, some paper, and waiting time between questions…and when I have that, I sketch cats.
At one of the cat shows we entered recently, I happened to notice a shape in one of the paper towel trashbins in the toilet. Can you see it?
Now can you see it?
This upcoming weekend is NEMO’s seventh annual show! You may remember that I did a drawing of Marlin playing craps, because the theme of the show this year is “Lucky 7’s” with a Vegas theme.
I also made this spoof of the infamous Vegas sign for the club to use as incidental art. I don’t know if they used it, but it was fun to make.
For the cover of the program, Iris and I brainstormed other Vegas gambling motifs, and I came up with Marlin winning cat food from a slot machine. And, even better, I was able to incorporate my Vegas NEMO sign. I’m pretty proud of how it turned out; Iris said she thought it was one of my best! I wonder what the theme will be next year?
When we went to Aino, the Finnish restaurant in Helsinki, I noticed a sign-in book.
When we visited Helsinki with Jacoby in 2016, we ate at this restaurant.
I just thought they needed to be reminded of that event.
I found a couple of sketches I did back in SFI that I never posted. The first, I think we were talking about Swedish wildlife, so of course I started drawing lynxes. Then I started trying to compare a lynx to an Abyssinian.
This one I did before we got Logan. We had one teacher who lived on a farm and loved to talk about all the animals she had. I guess that day, it was all about chickens. After I got tired of drawing them, I started practicing the differences between Abys and Singas. I haven’t gone to SFI for about a year now (they moved to a different location and changed teachers and we just got unengaged busywork – stuff I’d actually already done a couple of times already). But it was good for something: it made me draw more regularly than I do now.
