papercutting: Round 1

We had a secret santa at the office, and they had specified that it be a "handmade" gift. I had done this illustration of one of the girl's in the office (i manipulated a photo of her and made her look like a jazz singer), and since I coincidentally got her as my secret santa, I turned that illustration into a papercut piece. It turned out pretty good, considering I barely had any time to work on it.  And of course, I conveniently had the perfect frame with mount too.  Ah~ it's so good to have supplies on hand.

On another note, I recently purchased a gocco machine (print gocco, as it's called in Japan).  OH WHAT fun I am going to have this weekend when my inks and screens arrive!

they are friends again, hey!

Kuro and Simba are now officially BFForever.  After their long fight over who will reign pride rock, they came to the conclusion that both could lead the wildlife of the safari, together, from the comforts of the couch.

Here is the king of the land, happy, and sleepy.

The king later got irritated by the camera flash.  'no pictures' he says.

It's feeling a little bit like Christmas...

I wasn't sure if I wanted to take out the Christmas tree this year, since I know that the kittens are going to be all over it.  But what is the holidays without a tree?  Now it's out, and we have so far learned that Kuro (the black one) likes to climb trees. go figure. I haven't caught him in action yet, but I hear the bell ornaments jingling now and again...Pictures of the tree, and Kuro munching on the fake branches.
