Getting Destructive For My Art


♫ I love the sound of breaking glass especially when I’m hungry. I need the noises of destruction when there’s nothing new. Nothing to do. ♫ Today’s piece of art I’m contributing to Athena’s Caturday Art Blog Hop shows me punching my paw through a pane of glass. I’d like to think I’m breaking into a pet store and I’m gonna stuff my bag full of Fancy Feast. My boi’s Tuna and PKitty are right behind me. We gonna have a pawty with all the toys in the place and leave before the po-po show up. Anybuddy else want in??


"I Love the Sound of Breaking Glass" is one of TW’s favorite songs from the late 1970s. Nick Lowe was one of her faves. I’m sure he’d be honored a stunning cat such as myself is paraphrasing his ancient song. TW doesn’t, however, really love the sound of breaking glass cos she knows I can get a sliver of it into my paws and that would be a real expensive problem. Ka-ching. The sound of breaking glass usually means the end of her juice glass. Heh heh. Our “manual” dishwasher tends to break quite a few of those.

Back in da hood, the sound of breaking glass was usually followed by car alarms going off. I didn’t really like the sound the alarm made or the sirens of the po-po car. Those were some exciting days. These days I wish I could punch through the window when the flying rats on the roof next door are mocking me. Do you ever feel like breaking glass?


This photo also looks stunning in sepia, which is why I’m also participating in Sepia Saturday Blog Hop over at Ruckus the Eskie’s place

I think you should make a rap remix CK. You must he hearing a lot of breaking glass over there what with your treasured dish getting smashed and all :(

I'm sure Binga would enjoy accompanying you on a pet store heist!

I'd go on a heist - and steal lotsa food!

Molly The Wally said...

Yep we'd steal foodables but we sure hope we wouldn't get banged up by the Po Po. Loved the song too. Have a super Saturday.
Best wishes Molly

CK I love that you live on the edge....we only go 'round once (well...maybe 9 times) but I say GO FOR IT. I'm up for a rumble whenever you are!

Hugs, Sammy

That looks so great!

I want to do that when I see the nasty tom cat from down the road come to taunt me on my patio!

I want to smash the glass door to get to him but my mum won't let me!

Oh CK, it seems I have that bad hurty anal gland dealio again. Sigh. The Human says we will have to go to the Stabby Place Monday--I do NOT want to do that, but I will sing the song of my People and be brave all the way. Will you purr for me? XOXOXOX

That's some intense artwork in Sepia! I thought they were spider webs at first. Thanks for sharing!

Like a little demon... a very cute little demon.

We are definitely in for the breaking into the pet store! Sounds like fun! Cool pictures, CK!

C,K, Mommy said she was able to meet plush C.K at Blog Paws, and she felt so honored; though, she wished she could meet the real you and TW. Maybe next year. XO, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo

Breaking glass meant the same thing in the neighborhood where I grew up, too, CK.

Your artwork is cool ... it kind of looks like the iPad screen of a lady I saw in Central Park last week!

M Dawson said...

Wow that looks so real CK!!

We gonna run for cover!!!

Oooh CK! We had a breaking glass incident on Saturday! Someone dropped a glass and it smashed to absolute smithereens. It frightened everyone and it took hours to find all the shards. Thankfully it wasn't me who was the perp and I wasn't anywhere near otherwise The Staff would have flipped her lid for sure!! Nice artwork :)

Me would LOVE to bust into the Petshop with you CK !!
