[Sketch] Life With Cats : Let Me Out !
When I don't feel well and need to calm down away from the camper, I always go to the picnic table cluster close to the camping's community room and I bring my sketchbook and pencils to make some sketchs.

This time, I got inspired by the my last shower when Luna, my 2yo black cat decided to stay in the bathroom as I was preparing for shower.
During shower, she firstly started to "let-me-out" meow only when I talked to her, but a little later, she started meowing even when I didn't talk to her, and they were becoming insistant. She doesn't like being in a steamy bathroom !
I finally opened the door that was right next to the bathtub (camper bathrooms are very small) but Miss Luna stayed still for like 30 seconds before finally going out.
Cats logic loll !
So I drew a small Ishimaru comic about this.
Gosh I have trouble with hands on door knobs ! That's the main flaw that I just can't seem to be able to fix it !
The lines on the cat's upper body is her harness since I let Luna go out only on leash. It's the safest way to make your cat appreciate outdoors when you cannot have a catio. Having seen two free-roaming cats disappear in the past, our cats go out on leash only.

I'm a 31 years old woman and I live in Québec. I am currently jobless. My mother tongue is French, but I'm quite fluent in English too. I live with low vision, even thought I have enough vision to draw. I also live with anxiety disorders and possibly ADD.

My interests are quite geeky : I'm a GIMP user since 2006 and I mostly use open source softwares.
I used Linux for seven years on my previous PC and now I have an Alienware laptop running Windows 7. Even thought I'm not a power-gamer, I enjoy playing RPGs such as the FF serie and I'm a big fan of Yoshi since his debut (even though I suck at platform games :( ). I also like Japanese culture (anime, manga, jpop) and reading fantasy novels. I'm also a crazy cat lover (nyaaaa ! <3)

In the past, I was a moderator on Forumotion support forum from 2005 to 2007. I made styles for Forumotion and phpBB and I make my own webdesign for my site. I also wrote many tutorials for GIMP, phpBB, Forumotion and FluxBB.

I'm currently writing a course about GIMP in French, on a French e-learning community site.

I bought a graphic tablet on November 2014 and I can say that my current level is Intermediate. For traditional art, I have a drawing pencils set Mom bought me and I kept my old colored pencils. I also have watercolor pencils.

I now take commissions. Please read these two following journal entries before commissionning me :
Commission Info and Guidelines
Commission Status

I do not take request or art trade.


My birthday badge
The last months were filled with bad news beginning with our trailer's canopy getting teared and its rod bent because of excess rain while not in a position to drain itself. This meana fee after passing it to insurances.
Then Dad had an abnormal PSA blood test result which lead to have a biipsy to his prostate which revealed that two samples out of them were cancerous.
This meaned Dad couldn't think about looking for a part-time job while Mom doesn't work many hours.
And the final bad news was this month when my parents' loan request in order to reunite debts in one place was declined. We can hardly do groceries and I have to lend a hand.


...But then some better news began to arrive.
Dad had an appointment with the urologist last Thursday about what was going to be done. The latest results showed no progression , and if the new blood test taken this week goes the same way, no treatment or surgery will be done since prostatic cancer is one type of cancer that has a very slow progression, and in some men, this can take years without progressing. And also because surgery has a lot of side-effects.
So unless contrary, Dad will return to urology in 3 months and he finally can think about a part-time job.

And yesterday it's my turn to have a ray of hope !  We had a Brunch&Blowling activity with a group of visually impaired people and my cooking teacher who was my former boss was there to serve the cold buffet.
While I was giving news about me such as the fact of having completely cut down added sugars and free sugar, she told me and my Mom that the seniors home where I used to work will finally expand this year and this will create new jobs, and she tought about me since the expansion will create a new kitchen division for pastry, and the person who'd work there would work alone, which means no crashing into someone else (this was my trouble spot). And this time my position wouldn't be an extra one that would be conditional to the amount of refund for hiring someone with disabilities. This means the new job which is planned with the expansion would be much more steady.
And as Mom told her that she doesn't work many hours, my teacher offered her to join as well.


Yep, there are good chances that my jobless time will end this late Spring ! And working with Mom to whom I'm very close ? It would be wonderful !
