IMAGINE


This is for all you cat owners and also those who don't especially enjoy doing household chores. I would like to thank my cats Maggie and Nugget for being such willing models.

I created the "Imagine" type in Illustrator. The drawings were done with Micron pens and watercolor pencils.

Love this; I'm going to show it to my cat...you think she'll get the hint? --yuck-yuck.

I've always imagined how sweet it would be if pets (hmmm and children) could help out a bit more.

These are great. My favourite is the cats on washing-up duty. . . )

Well-thought, elegant, actual illustration. My favorite of the week. :)

Karen Winters said...

I love it. And yes, I'm definitely a cat owner who wishes they'd lend a hand now and then. I agree with Ron, it's really an illustration that's right on ...

Very cute and Funny, I also wish my cat could help out around the house. It's the least she could do. I love your work by the way, and your style is fantastic.

Hey Amy, this week's illo is simply wonderful. The idea is superb and your illustration is done just right. The expression of the cat cleaning the latrine and ironing the clothes is me! Fabulous style too! Love it.

Oh Amy...where can I find a cat like this? Ours just lie around all day, puke from time to time, and then get a big burst of energy at about 2 A.M. This is genius! And so purrfectly (sorry) done. You have all the body movements down, and the gestures are excellent. This is the funniest illustration I've seen this week. Thanks for the laugh:>

Wow...this is really well done!
I love it. I actually have a photo of my cat, Simon, pulling on a trash bag drawstring just like that. (he has a fetish for them and will eat them if I dont watch him)

Way to go, cats! You have very talented pets. Our two cats don't come close. It'd take a giant leap to imagine my cats helping out. Really like the expressions on their faces for the different chores. Great!

(just as i typed that, i can hear my own cat.. knocking down an ornmanet from the tree!)

Wonderful illustrations!

I love your style. I like the vintage feel of it. I wish my kids could clean as well as the cats are.

THis is really funny. I wish my cat could do these things. All she can do is sit on our laps and claw the furniture.
