flying...

flying...

So am I a cat
dreaming I’m a butterfly
or really flying?

After eating a big fish all to himself – Issa’s cat definitely needed a bit of a nap and big meals can make for the most interesting dreams!

I thought I’d try writing my own haiku this time – Issa’s cat’s dream is based on the famous Chinese philosopher Chuang Tsu (Zhuangzi) story. One day he dreamt he was a butterfly. When he awoke he was no longer sure if he was a man who had dreamt he was a butterfly or a butterfly now dreaming he was a man.

As always, comments and alternate poetic responses are welcome!

Issa’s cat – my fish!

my fish!

my fish!

Mutual interests
are the foundation of love
but this is my fish!

Following on with the Issa’s cat story, a new haiku from Tom Radcliffe inspired the above comic. Perhaps though, there’s a little regret in that backwards glance – or maybe just confirming a good decision. I think she was only into him for his fish anyway!

This is number three in the Issa’s Cat series. To see them all, click the Issa’s Cat comic category on the side.

Now on Le 12 as “Mon Poisson!”

today’s doodle…

Just a doodle today. I was out of town for the weekend and didn’t have time to do any drawings. I’m working on some new stuff though – hoping to surprise and delight etc etc. I think of this girl as the type of spunky heroine who ends up being far too sweet for her own good. As a character type I see her as a bit like Bactine in Lint.

Caught red-pawed!

Issa’s cat is caught!
But a cat may look a king
right in the eye.

Poetry thanks again to Tom Radcliffe in the comments! There is also an interesting commentary there if you want to check it out.

On another note, you can see the adventures of quite a different sort of animal when a camel gets feisty with a bucket on cute overload. It’s pretty amusing – don’t forget the hover text is more than half the fun!

This sequence now available en français on Le 12!

carpe diem!

carpe diem!

Best not leave the kitchen unattended with an open door…

I’m pretty sure that means “seize the carp” lol

A chef’s inattention
is a cat’s invitation.
Carpe piscem!

Thanks to Tom Radcliffe in the comments for the poetic intervention!

"all good things..."

"good things come..."

There can be some distractions on the road looking for love… and Issa’s cat is fairly easily distracted.
The scent of fish is strong near the cafe by the wharf and a cat could score a fine dinner if his timing is right! Just waiting for the perfect opportunity to get something a bit tastier than fishbones…

A fragrant fish
piques that most feline feature:
curiosity!

A new haiku to accompany the image thanks to Tom Radcliffe in the comments!

what could he possibly be thinking about?

what could he possibly be thinking about?

I am still thinking about the webcomic and the characters that need to be developed for it. Here is another glimpse.

For a look at how it’s really done, check out this link to one of my favourites as his cute and fuzzy cast takes another visit to the theatre – always good for a laugh! http://www.abominable.cc/2009/05/20/a-deal-with-the-devil/
