Like a young fawn taking its first tentative steps from its mother’s side, vulnerable and shaking, so I make my first foray into the world of online blogging. And that just took me about ten minutes to write, so get ready for more laboured similes, self-conscious attempts to be funny and self deprecation.
But that first sentence wasn’t totally in vain, as today I wanted to talk about cute. As a long-standing fan of cuteoverload, winston and pretty much every video on youtube involving baby sloths, japanese cats and pugs, I often find it slipping into my drawing. I like to think that there’s possibly something more than pure fluff behind this visage of cute, and sometimes the effect of trying to replicate it can be quite creepy:
Although its unfinished, I hope you can agree there is something quite unsettling in the kittens’ eyes…

I also had to take pictures to promote the new saw movie (don’t ask) today. couldn’t resist injecting a little cute into that too, courtesy of the neighbourhood cat
