Goodbye Blogger, hello Tumblr. At least, I'm ready to make this transition. Tumblr allows multiple members so it looks like I'll need to move this blog if we're going to have new members. It will be easy. But you will have to join Tumblr and email me again to ask to be added. Then you'll be able to post to the Monday Artday Tumblr as you wish.
So, are you all on board with this? I will make the transition next Monday.

I just announced an official cat week over on my blog. And I received my new business cards in the mail. Yup. Cat. Then I went on facebook and saw that Monday Artday is back! I'm glad you are feeling better Mike. And a cat theme. Meow.
I do have my phone # on my actual card. But I omitted it here. I didn't want to get inundated with calls from cats wanting to hire me to design their business cards. They can be so pussy.
Blogger has reduced the number of members allowed to a blog. This means that no new members can be added. I am trying to work this out with Blogger but this may mean that the blog will have to be moved. The spirit of this blog is to allow everyone to post and I would like to keep it that way. I will keep you informed.
This will be the first in a series of on-going idioms to illustrate. The series will be often interrupted with other challenges, but will continue until we run out of idioms - which is never. So, let your imagination run wild!
Idiom: Like Ships That Pass in the Night
Illustrate the idiom in any way you like to conjure the idea of ships that pass in the night
Challenge ends on September 9, 2013.
Here is my cat character, it is part of a much bigger book illustration. I used my neighbors cat for inspiration, she was a perfect model))
This proud Kitty dreams rest on the water, but.. .only is blue color
Coraline - pulp fiction cover - for "cats"
EL GATO CON MANOPLAS | PUSS IN MITTENS
It's what the Internet is made of.
Illustrate the what you think of when you hear the word "cats."

Concerts in the park, ants, potato salad, etc. What do you think of when you hear the word:
Illustrate the idea of "Picnic."

Yes, the rumors of my death are greatly exaggerated. But I'm back and I'm staying. I'm healthy and I have a regular work schedule so there's no reason not to keep this site running, even if I only get one illustration a week out of it. So, I'm going to make a few changes. Challenges will be the same but I'll also be posting tutorials, tips, downloads, and interviews. Yes, I will. This might be what Mary Poppins describes as "a pie crust promise. Easily made, easily broken." So, have your doubts, I'll just have to let time tell.
New Years resolution, more painting
, more romance?
Some watchful scarecrows from last week
Had a drawing challenge this week so thought I would share. I love doing this Hanna Barbara Zombies, so nothing like a worn and rugged airship with a raised from the dead Peter Potamus!
Here's my latest painting.
So its been an extremely LONG time since posting anything on Monday Artday....shame..shame...so at least I thought I would do a quick shout out and a post to show upcoming work....definitely post latest finished work soon. Hope all you artists are knocking out great stuff right now!!

I was inspired by Josh Pincus and his abandoned post. It is sad that Monday Artday has been neglected lately. I think there is a need for another themed art spot like illustrationfriday. One that is smaller and more manageable. So lets keep it going until Mike is able to post themes again! We are all authors here. I picked Sad as this week's theme. So true. So spread the word among your art friends and post your own piece. Sniff.
