Cleaning Monster

Our Siamese cat Sheelba was very scared of hoovers. The minute anyone got the hoover out she would rush away and find the highest place possible or go and hide in the garden and till the terror was over! Luckily for her I do not much like cleaning and so I didn't bother her that often.
This is a cartoon from my Siamese Planet website. Sirikit is our new girl and is not impressed by hoovers, drills , mixers or anything else!

I like this on so many levels. first because i love cats and this just tickles me, thinking about what's going on in their little cat brains when the hoovers roaring ;) Second, because it is soooo well executed. The strip really moves from left to right, the lines are dynamic and the colors superb! Great job!

Great little comic...I love how pretty and slinky that cat is, and how perfectly you captured her desire to get away from the vacuum! The extended paw in the right frame is excellent.

Hi! Thanks for visiting my illustration blog and for your thoughtful comments on my fine arts blog. I just went to your website and was totally charmed by Sheelba and Ning! What a wonderful strip you've created. You've really hit on a unique and very expressive style.Definitely a strip for cat lovers everywhere!!! I' going to create a link to your site if that's okay with you ;)

Also, did you see the book review "Varjak Paw?" about a Mesopotamian Blue cat? I think you would enjoy to book!

Please come back and visit again.
