Today we present an art trade!
One day we were watching Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, and when Mrs. Weasley uttered that immortal line (responding to Ginny's question as to where her jumper was), "Yes, dear, it was on the cat!", we as usual wondered what it could mean... Was the cat actually wearing Ginny's jumper? Was the cat lying underneath it? And since when do the Weasleys have a cat anyway?? Or was her jumper sitting on some other object known to the family as "the cat"? In any case, I told J she should illustrate what was going on there, and this is what she came up with:
It's so happy and dancing! And what a fashionable jumper. The animation was an afterthought, but a stroke of genius.
And then one day J was feeling a little blue, and said she felt like a sad panda, and then she asked me to illustrate that. And I did! And it looks like this:
Sometimes it's nice to give each other ideas for interesting and unusual arts.
P.S. Here's a tiny and pixelish version of the Weasley kitty:
