This little feline seraph is my entry in Dot at Dabbled’s Anti V-Day Contest. The idea is to do something a little darker or creepier than the usual Valentine’s Day fare. Where my little friend here lacks in darkness and creepiness, he more than makes up for in sheer convenience, as he was already created last year. I added a bit of blood in hopes that one of the judges might find it kind of dark… Creepy maybe… if you squint? 

Alright, I’m tryin’ over here!


Check out Dabbled too, if you get a chance. It’s a wonderful place to visit!

    Hehe.. Fun illo, I do find it a little creepy, but only because I remember what happened the last time one of my cats got ahold of Cupid’s bow and arrow.

    Happy V-Day!

    He looks like he could be dissuaded from a lifestyle of violence… there’s still hope for him.

    Really fun image and such a wonderful character.

    Absolutely the best anti Valentine’s Day … a pinch of irony, a dose of the dark, much sense of humor and a masterly artist!!!

  10. Another great cat character – love this one’s eyes – he looks quite guilty!

    Well, love hurts, right??
    I still love this guy even though his face rings a bell.
    I could never, ever get tired of seeing any repeats here, okay?? Okay. As long as we’re clear!

    I’ve been such a bad blogging buddy. Where have all the minutes in a day gone?? (Was that good English? Prob-ly not!)

    haha what a cutie! love your catpid.

  13. dot Says:

    well, *I* think it’s adorable!

    This is pretty funny…great design on your characters. I meant to add you to my barratuna blog roll but kept losing track of people as IF has gotten so ‘big’…you are now there and easier to keep tabs on…

    I love him. 🙂

    I also wanted to come up with a darker, scarier illustration for Valentine’s but it was too ambitious to finish in time (i.e. the dark side of Eros/Cupid). Hopefully, in the future…

  16. chickengirl Says:

    oh! I LOVE the idea of a darker illo for valentine’s day…I actually had an idea but didn’t have time to execute it.

    Yeah, the drop of blood is good! I love it…heheh!
