Illustration Friday – Vacant

Illustration Friday
Well, the hungry ol' cat went looking for a snack and his silly disguise only got in the way. And when he opened the cage, the "snacks" got away! (But not so far as to hang about and do a little bit of gloating!)

So here's a new one. Today is a big day. I already voted and I am so glad that no matter what happens one of those two blue birds of happiness will soon be the President. Now, I do like one so much more than the other, but after the last few years…

The White House has been vacant too long.

This is a very cool and clever image. I love that the cat is wearing a mask. Brilliant!

That's a smart cat Michael, pity for him that the birds are smarter. A great cartoon, lots of garish colour and most importantly lots of humour, just the way I like them. Excellent work.

I love this one, it definitely fits with the happy excited mood I am in today :) That cat had a pretty good disguise though!

That kitty just wasn't clever enough! I think I prefer the uncolored version although I do like both. Old school:)
Here here on the White House. Here's to great change....hopefully!

Well-done! The White House is another thing altogether. I'm hoping for change I can believe in!

Hi michael. I am looking for Linda. Will you please ask her to call Kay. My number hasn't changed. She can look it up in the phone book if she doesn't have it. It has been over 4 years since I have spoken to her and I have not been able to find any working #'s to reach her.
Thanks....Kay
