Cat cards.....

Well I am finally back. I have joined a trade at Drawspace to try to get back in the groove. I put my things away at Christmas and they just never came back out. The ATC trade is for 18 cards on Cats, Crazy Cats.
ATCs originally were playing cards that artists painted white and then put their own art on. So I thought I would try to incorporate that idea. It was harder than I thought, trying to get a drawing down to the minimal amount of lines and then inside of a shape. I think I could spend the whole month just trying to get these to look the way I want them, but I still have 13 more to do. The three or four redraws that I have done will have to do.

You might be wondering why Bob is on the back of Cat cards. We have always said that Bob is the biggest cat we have ever met. He is also my Avatar most places right now so he is recognizable as mine. Kind of like a signature.


Ace of Clubs
This one will have to get redone or stay home.

King of Spades

Queen of Hearts

Jack of Diamonds
Hm-m I wonder if white out will fix the lines across the ears?


  1. I really like this series. So clever and cute. Love your new adoptee. Looks so mellow. Looks like she has had all she wants of breeding.

  2. What a great idea for ATCs. Your cats have wonderful expressions! :-)

  3. Hi Jeanne,
    Thank you!
    Magic was probably only bred 2 or 3 times, but I am sure that is more than plenty. She is a delight to have around the house.

    Hi Teresa,
    Thank you!

  4. These are just wonderful! I love the idea of the playing cards with these. Just darling!

  5. Thank you Lori. it was a bit of a departure for me. but fun to work on.
