I was watching despicable me, and really enjoyed the style of the 3 sleepy kittens book in the movie. Thus this cat came to be I looked on amazon to see if I could buy a copy of the book, and you can, but I was reading the reviews...I was disappointed to find out that the book is not as nicely made as the one in the movie. No brush, and apparently the puppets aren't fabric or in the same place as the ones in the movie.
But meh, i guess. This seems to have come out pretty well.

After having watched tangled this past weekend i have come to the realization that i seem to be greatly inspired to draw... by colour. The scene in the movie where they are lighting the lanterns (and rapunzel is there with Eugene) is amazing. The colours are just gorgeous. I found myself wanting to sit in front of my laptop right there to try and replicate those colours and feelings. It's strange but when i think back to serious inspiration that I have, many of my art binges were done after I had been inspired by an illustration that I was just wowed by the colour. Don't get me wrong, line and style, and movement for that matter, inspire me, but something about colour really wows me.
just a thought.
