It also tells a little secret...that even some of the greatest artist of all time might not have been in control of their studios. Whimsical creatures and quirky characters seem to have a long history of dazzling and demanding attention, all the way back to the kaiba (oriental seahorse) and suisa (water rhinoceros) of Hokusai.
Don't tell that to the pig and the cat, though. Shhhhh.

Shenanigans and malarkey, indeed! This piece pulled me right out of whatever was playing across my mind as I opened my email and right INTO the immediacy of a piggy-cat ride! Compelling composition, Jen: I like what stays on the page, what goes off, how most of the space is filled but some is not. And the fake writing: LOVE IT!

Hooray!!!! Thank you, Dotty! But let's keep all that away from the dynamic duo...they are already so much trouble. I wouldn't want them to get big head on top of that. ha ha!

I was also attracted to that writing. Really commanding attention. Don't tell piggy and the cat, they think they are central stage, which they are! Thanks for the intro to the sketch books!

Thanks, Carol! It was fun inventing my own character for the writing part. And yes, shhhhhhhhh. Those rascals!
