Final Purrcasso Piece 2010

I've finished my second piece for Purrcasso 2010. This one is called "Rescue Party." It actually stemmed from a sketch idea I had that illustrates the caption, "Where did you last see it?" In the original idea I imagined a little girl looking for her cat and a team of firefighters were searching through ridiculous places; unbeknownst to them, the "cat" is actually a giant monster hidden in the tree one of them is climbing. The idea evolved from a team of firefighters to the girl dressed as a fireman ordering a bunch of animals trying (and failing) to climb a tree. My friend asked, "But dogs can't climb trees... what if you had them form a ladder to the top?" And this is what I came up with!

This next one was just for fun. I'm sure as a kid we've all stared into the deep water while on a boat and imagined those shadows we saw were some enormous sea creature underneath...

I'll be attending the gala this weekend! For more information go to: and read more below!
