Viva la Chica!

Chica has passed on to the great kitty litter box in the sky. There are many that will miss her.

I found some pictures of her, some I haven't seen in a long time. I thought they were worth sharing.

I know the one on the left is a little blurry at full size but how could I pass up a picture of Chica on the stove. As far as the one on the right goes, what is it with cats and drying racks? Determination to show their balancing skills and the idea that they can go anywhere? I think so.

She would be really annoyed with me taking her picture after awhile but she always looked so good, even in a pile of socks or Christmas garland!


Sometimes she had this Garfield attitude like in the photo on the left, or maybe she was just annoyed with all the picture taking again. The photo on the right proves her constant desire to go outside and snack on the lawn. She didn't care if you were on the 2nd floor and she was on the 1st floor, she would sit down there and wait for you to let her out!


More Chica.

Jedi Master Chica with her Padawan, Bob.

Chica, Bob and Chuck.

I remember the first time I woke up to Chica laying on my chest in the middle of the night. I couldn't focus and I didn't know why - she was that close to my face! I'll miss her wet nose, those cool green eyes, and her cuddling up to my belly at night under the blankets.

Poster designs

During some of my free time I have been submitting poster designs to a website called Creative Allies. It's a place where artists and designers can share their ideas for posters, CD covers, t-shirts, and other items for musicians, and have a chance for their work to be selected and printed, and win a prize as well.

Here are two of my latest poster designs. The image on the left is an 11"x17" poster created for the music festival known as Electric Forest. The image on the right is 1 of 3 designs that was created for the Ellie Goulding summer tour poster (16"x20"). You can find the other 2 designs on my website or in my portfolio.

I've included my website at the bottom of these images for display purposes - this text was not featured in the original designs.
