Very fun! Thanks for you comment, and so quick. I'm up late on the West Coast in a hotel lobby making my post and checking a few blogs, and it was fun see a comment show up so quickly! Kind regards, Scott.

Oh, you like bunnies. I was driving a couple nights ago, and hit a dead end road, and at the end of that road it was bunny central! There were literally dozens and dozens of bunnies that I could see in the distance of about an eighth of a block at the end of this road. They were everywhere!

Coffe is the best! Almost everyday my mom, sisters and two neighbors take some minutes to catch upon and enjoy a nice hot coffe. We do so even with my sister Lilia, who lives out of my country, while we are having a video conference :)

I'll show them ur nice illo, I'm sure they're going to love it!

Really like your compostion and use of accents and text...but for some reason I can't picture cats souped up on coffee as looking so calm and pleasant...Nice to see your style on other critters!

Cats on caffiene, who'd a thunk it! It's great! I think drinking too much coffee would cut in on their 23 hours of napping though, don't you?

Maybe they could be drinking that really expensive coffee made from civet cat poop.

my mom used to have friends that would come by any time of day or night and they would sit around and talk and drink coffee. does this still happen?
i'd like that sometimes i think.

anyway, cute as always!

hey you guys, thank you so much for all of your comments!! I really appreciate the feedback, the funny quips, whatever you throw at me.

I drew this when my hand was oh so tired. When I look at it now, I can see that is evident - - but, you know, it's nice to see the positive in everything, so, by that attitude, I will say that there is a nice, sort of child-like but assertive quality to my line work in this one. I have spent my whole life working on symmetry, symmtry, symmetry. I am a border- and ornamental art-obsessed person (and yes I mean obsessed). I am a lefty and when i was but a wee one - very young - I ALWAYS would accidentally write/draw in a slanted fashion - - slanted straight off the page!! So it has been part of my life's art work to strive for symmetry and evenness to an extent (obviously not to that much of an extent - but it is a constant lesson for me - life-long). So it's funny for me to see coffee and conversation in this not lining up - conversation is charmingly slanted. Reminds me of the child in me reverting...maybe that happens when I'm tired and I draw. Always learning something new.. :)
