Saturday Morning Cartoons: Best of Catbug

When I was a kid, my eyeballs were as good as super-glued to the television screen once Saturday morning cartoons commenced. At the age of four, I remember being dragged away from Fat Albert so my neighborhood friends could hang out with me one last time before we moved away. Cartoons are second only to cats in the Stephiverse. With that in mind, I would like to share with you a compilation of awesomeness that never fails to move me. Catbug, it's Catbug! I love me some Catbug! Here he is in all his incomprehensible glory!

Friday Night Videos: MitchiriNeko March

Let's continue with our current theme of cats because well, I can think of nothing better. No, not because I haven't thought long and hard about it, but because there is nothing better. Look here. It's a feline marching band! A three minute cat parade! I hope you enjoy this as much as I did. If so, make yourself some popcorn and settle in for the 10 hour version below.

Andy Williams and Some Other Cool Cats

Valentines by StephG

You know, I'm not one to get excited about Valentine's day. M and I don't do anything special other than maybe share a high five after saving a few bucks on some good chocolate we'd otherwise have paid full price for. It's not that I dislike the holiday. I mean, the irritatingly early shop displays are often lovely and (although romance is not an original focus of the holiday) as they say, love is a many splendored thing. I do remember really enjoying selecting Valentine cards and addressing them to my classmates when I was in elementary school. Also, there was one point a few years back when my house was full of kids who showed a fair bit of excitement about the holiday which prompted me to bake cupcakes with hearts and that sort of thing. That was fun.

This year, with my recently developed habit of digital drawing, I thought it would be fun to try designing some Valentine cards like the little ones we sent as kids. Turns out, I was right. It was fun. I came up with a handful of designs, mostly cat-themed because what's better than cats? Nothing. Nothing is better than cats. In the photo above are some test prints I had done at my local copy shop. They turned out pretty cute so I've listed them in my etsy shop as an instant download. For 99 cents you can download the jpeg file and print these suckers as many times as you like. What a deal. I'll post an image of some other designs below.

And just in case it's not already stuck in your head, let's end with some good old fashioned crooning that will definitely do the job.
Love and chocolate,

Cats Cards and Candy

So as you've seen, I've recently been doing some digital drawing. What with having most of my studio packed away for our hopefully imminent move, pushing pixels around has been a convenient way to make stuff. And you know, I even like some of the things I've made. So much so that I had a few drawings turned into little cards. This pink piggy-looking kitten above is one of five designs. See the rest below. They're all listed in my etsy shop--Sidewalk167... along with some other stuff. It's not all digital. Yep yep. Eyep. Okay, I'm gonna keep this short as Stumpy is playing musical laps, and all this typing seems to be disturbing my turn as kitty host.

Over and out,

P.S. I lied about the candy.
