Please Stand By...

I realized I haven't posted anything in a while...thank you all for the lovely comments on Doña Norma. I've been a bit busy finishing up a project before I leave on my trip to Spain (WHAT? SPAIN?)
So here to keep you company for a little bit is me next to an ice cream vendors cart in Tijuana. I thought it was pretty funny.

Doña Norma...my cat lady neighbor.

When I lived back home, we used to live next door to Doña Norma. She usually wore a scowl on her face, curlers on her head and a muumuu. Despite her cranky exterior, she had a good heart. She was the official voluntary hotel for the neighborhood felines. She had about 30 cats living on her premises. The place REEKED. One day, Doña Norma sprayed insecticide around her garden. She completely forgot she had 2 female cats that were pregnant. Well, I don't want to go into specifics, but those were the scariest kittens I EVER saw. Some came out with only one eye, others were missing an ear. But Doña Norma, patron saint of stray cats, bless her soul, kept them anyway. And they went on reproducing, even to this day.

U is for Unicorn

The Mexican graphic design magazine known as TIYPO has been asking different designers to participate in their upcoming issue. Each designer is given a different letter of the alphabet and has to design something that starts with it. Therefore, U is for Unicorn. Again with the unicorns...I know, I know.
Jorge got the letter G and I must say, it came out R-A-D. So rad in fact that it got the cover! You can check Jorges design on his Super-Macho Blogo.

Other than the MUNNY, the folks down at SUBTEXT were nice enough to let me participate in a vinyl art show that will be happening towards the end of the year. The star of the show will be a cat sculpture called the MIAO. A blank copy of the cat vinyl toy and his mouse buddy was given to several artists to customize. Here's my version. His name is Simon. The mouse pal is Teeny. Together they are Simon and Teeny.



Simon and Teeny!
