I saw this contest in my news, and I don't usually get all inspired to do anything. Well, as luck has it, I WAS this time.
Meet Tuxedo Cat! (I think in Japanese that would be "Tuxedo Neko"...which gives me the giggles due to dear old "Tuxedo Kamen".)
My youngest real pet cat has a funny way of sitting. I took a glance at him around the time I was reading this news and I realized, his pose made his chest look like a heart. Guess what he inspired!
If you look carefully, you can find quite a few "heart" shapes in this image. That was perhaps the most fun part about it. I just played with shapes and colors.
