If you’re reading this post, you’re probably a crazy cat lady at heart. As I mentioned back in April 2019, I was convinced I wasn’t a pet person until my mom got her little Siamese, Puck. Now I feel bereft if I go a day without seeing him. In these uncertain times, video calling is proving to be a true blessing. I get pet therapy, mom time AND artistic inspiration all in one daily dose! My latest crazy cat lady art uses my favorite free-hand drawing techniques combined with watercolor pencils.

Crazy times call for crazy cat lady art

And these are definitely crazy times! If you’ve got a pet, go ahead and give ’em a squeeze. Pets are apparently safe from the coronavirus, so you can get your oxytocin fix without compromising their, or your, health. If you don’t have a pet, then do like I do and surround yourself with art that makes you smile.

The crazy cat lady illustration is now available on a bunch of neat products – like totes, tees, laptop cases, pillows, notebooks and more – in my shop at Society6. I’m especially fond of the mug:

And I think the coasters are pretty fun, too!

By the way, Puck isn’t just MY muse.

He’s a very helpful shop assistant and keeps a watchful eye on my mom in her pottery studio, too. (And, as you can see in these photos, he also moonlights as the Vanna White of ceramics.)

    Who is Vanna White? That’s my BOY! I think he’s cute in your illustration. Of course, that’s not me, though, (is it????). Xoxo

      Hi Mm,

      No, it’s not you. You don’t wear pearls…otherwise, it’s a complete likeness. Hee-hee!

      Ola Ana,

      Thanks so much for writing! I need to call Paulinha, though I did get her news via my mom recently. These are definitely troubled times. I’m glad you have your dois gatinhos a fazer companhia! Sending lots of love and good wishes. Stay safe!
