The Illustration Friday theme this week is “Backside.”

Oh…hold on…,



Excuse me, I’ve just been informed that Illustration Friday’s theme this week is actually “Backwards.”

So sorry. Well, I hope you won’t mind a little kitty backside in your face. Those of us who have feline roomates experience this on a regular basis. I think you know what I mean.

Anyway, this kitty’s backside is pulling double duty, as it is also the theme of my holiday greeting card for 2007.

    Hehe… kitty bum. I think it is a rule that cats must put their little bums in your face to greet people.

    I think when a cat head-butts you or puts it’s butt in your face, it’s a show of endearment. Is he winking at me?? ha ha ha!! I love your illustrations so much!
