illustration friday - immovable

I wish we were "immovable" but we hit the road for NC in three weeks, yikes! So much to do, so little time. Today I'm heading down to the Smithsonian Am. Art Museum see one of my fav-o-rite outsider art pieces, "The Throne of the Third Heaven of the Nations' Millennium General Assembly" by James Hampton, it's made out of tin foil. My kitten would have a field day playing in this thing.

illustration friday - caged

I haven't posted in a long while, but felt inspired to resurrect this doodle for this weeks IF topic, caged.  Our dear overlord kitty will have to pack up her stuff and get stuffed into her cage since we found out we have to move again! I'm very sad to be leaving Washington, D.C. my kitty's hometown.
