Fun with Graphics on National Cat Month

by Lorraine Bartlett / Lorna Barrett / L.L. Bartlett

Well, I'm still experimenting with graphics ... but I can't say my technique has gotten much better.  Still, it's FUN.

This month is National Cat Month, so I've had some fun with that (and will have more as the month goes on).  Here are a few of the graphics I've done for myself and The Chicks.

 You can't get much more simple than the above.

Still pretty simple.  (Mostly because I'm not good at isolating objects and need a white background.)

Still pretty simple, but at least there's a background.  And if you were wondering, there WILL be more Victoria Square books, but they have not yet been added to my publisher's production schedule.  I'll keep you posted when they are!  (Even though it says Mason and Della, those are really my cats, the late Bonnie and her sister, Betsy, who just turned 18 this week.)

Syrah is back with his National Cat Month message, too.  I'll be doing more for Leann's Cats In Trouble and some of the other chicks as the month goes on.

Speaking of the Chicks ... The next one is the most important ... but I'll let Mary tell you more about what's in store for our readers tomorrow.

Don't miss Mary's post.

How will YOU celebrate National Cat Month?  Do you have a rescue?  (Betsy and Bonnie came from a kill shelter.  Whew!  And just in the nick of time, too!  I can't imagine these last 18 years without my girl.  Who was sitting on my lap as I typed this post.)
