Celebrating Four Special Days With Art

Celebrating Four Special Days With Art

What a busy weekend this is! I'm glad you have time to join me today at my art gallery. I've done an art piece to honor International Box Day and Veterinary Appreciation Day which are today and Father's Day and Garfield the Cat Day which are celebrated tomorrow. All art was done by myself using our new Paint and Sketch actions. Are you ready for some action?

Lets start off with today's special events. As always, pics can be biggified and they have secret messages if you hover your mouse over them.

Celebrating Four Special Days With Art

For Veterinary Appreciation Day, I used the Paint action from my new toys. Whoever "painted" this did a real fine job cos the only difference I can tell is Dr. D.'s face. Happy Veterinary Appreciation Day to Dr. D. and the staff at Secaucus Animal Hospital. Thanks for treating me like a celebrity and not trying to kill me.

One of my favorite holidays on the CB calendar is International Box Day. I can always be found checking out whichever box came in the mail on any given day. "Thank you for your purchase" indeed. This cat is the best purchase the peeps will ever make. I used the Sketch action at 60% to retain some color. I really like this sketch action because at 100%, it looks like a coloring book page. Happy International Box Day!

What kind of art could I do for Garfield the Cat Day but a cartoon. First I used the Paint action and then the poster edges filter in Photoshop for the cartoon effect. This Garfield placemat has been in the family for decades and is starting to show the wear and tear. HAH! He's saying "Feed me" which I've been known to demand too. Faith used to eat 9 Lives and Gramps used to mail away for all their special offers. I have two Garfield water dishes which TW forgot to pull out for the photo shoot. #senile Happy Garfield the Cat Day!

I saved the best for last. This is another using the Sketch action at around 80%. Lately Pop's been pictured on the blog more than I have it seems. There was Hug Your Cat Day, the Ask CK post and yesterday on the tv and bloopers and … Who am I kidding? I love my Pop. He's responsible for me being in this condo. Sure, TW's name is on the paperwork and she first saw me on PetFinder.com but he's the real reason I'm here. We bonded when he came home from the hospital and he always has my back. Happy Father's Day to the best Pop a cat could have. I love my Pop!

Happy Father's Day to all the cat daddies out there. I think having a human Pop is special cos 98% of cats know our cat mom cos she nursed us but how many cats knew who their cat dads were? If you have a human Pop, what special moments do you have with him?

Thanks to Athena Cat Goddess Wise Kitty for hosting the Caturday Art Blog Hop so I can mess around with Photoshop and all the cool online apps that are so easy a cat can do them.

So much to celebrate this weekend! You know how much we love Garfield, and tomorrow's post is all about Mudpie's grandpa ;)

The Indulged Furries said...

You created great pictures for all the "days". I have a great cat daddy. He's gentle and kind, plays with me, and gives me snuggles. He also holds me while mom sticks the pill down my throat every morning, but I forgive him for that because mom makes him do it.

Jean Neilson said...

Wonderful post CK. I loved all your artsy pictures. I must admit I turned a greenish colour when I saw the Garfield place mat....we want one now for our own place mat. I'll have to work on mom.
