Wanderings of an artist in the trenches.

Yee Cats! Call for help!

I’m throwing this out to readers of this blog in hopes that you can help me out a little. I’m beginning work on a strip that I’ve been writing on for a long, long time, a series of small 4-pagers, (I’ll try and post some images of the work in progress) one of which was published in Heavy Metal years ago. In the strip a black cat figures prominently. When I conceived of this strip I lived with a cat, Ivy, and expected to use her when I eventually would begin the work on the art. Unfortunately, Ivy took ill many years ago and passed away before I was ready to begin the strip.

So, what I’m hoping is that maybe those of you with cats would honor me with photographs that I might use in the art for the strip? All kinds of shots are needed, cats playing, cats sleeping, cats walking, you name it. Any and all shots might be useful. You can send them to me via my email address:
blind_boy@mac.com or via some download service that you might use.

I hope this is not too great an imposition to ask and I look forward to hearing from you all.

    Thanks so much for the cat photos! Please keep’em coming. I’m sorry I’ve not responded until now. I’ve been flat on my back with the flu since Thursday and still am. I will write each of you personally when I’m well.
