I accidentally fell in love with the characters. I have no discipline. (Actually, I have been working on other more serious pieces too. I'll be uploading a new painting soon, I swear.) ;P

The gang from the Lackadaisy Speakeasy. Pardon my anachronisms. From what I was able to surmise, zoot suits like Rocky's were probably nowhere to be found until the latter part of the 1930s after the repeal of the Volstead Act but, well, they're talking cats.

Whenever I look at Calvin, I think to myself, yep, it's always the quiet ones you need to watch out for. :XD:

Hey, we actually had one of our professors use this in our intro to animation class today as an example of good ways to show expression in a character. Thought you might appreciate it! Love your stuff :heart:

Certainly! We're beginning our first group project for the year, and one of the professors was going over some basic dos and donts; visual aids are a blessing =w=

I have been trying to figure who that top cat is for 5 years. The fire starting who burned the house was all I could think of. Thank you artist. My 5 year quest is complete and now I can follow him.

I love these characters! Mitzi is especially good—the hair, hats, dresses, everything. I shall be ripping through your gallery. :gallery:
