My husband and I are illustrating/writing a book using an idea I came up with about two years ago now: cats doing jobs. After my cat died (she was just shy of her 20th birthday) it spurred me to get this started.
Here are a few of them for the book- let me know what you guys think.
We are wanting to make the book, eventually. I have several that I need to ink and paint still (they are water colors.) I wonder if anyone who has etsy store experience can give any pointers on the best way to make prints.
I made a Totoro nursery for my son. He was born in Nov. 2012 and I rushed to paint it all before he showed up. I sketched on the wall, then painted the Totoros (grey, white, and blue-ish grey.) I free handed the soot sprites. The first thing I made for his room was the felt/yarn garland. I found the yarn in a discarded clearance area at my local Michael's and instantly knew that it would look like the spiderwebs you see at the into of the movie. I knew it had to be Totoro for little Julien.
I have more of the pictures posted to my user gallery here. I didn't want to make it too image heavy.
