New Banner

I finally painted the new Cat Tacos banner. The sketch is in an earlier post. My wife has already started telling me what I need to change. Any sugestions/comments?

By the way, a lot of people ask what So, cat tacos?" means or where the heck I got the name. Well, when I was setting up this blog it asked for a title so I typed this. I was going to change it later, but I didn't, so it stuck. It is a palindrome (spelled the same forwards and backwards) that I have always liked. There you have it: the origins of "So, cat tacos?".

I love it! The expressions are priceless.

Or maybe I should say "Wow", its a palindrome.

Guy:

That banner rules! I still am studying your work from Mrs. McBloom. What a tour de force.

Those are some snooty looking cats. Upper crust, I'd say. hmmm...there's an old pun; Aristo-Cats.

Looks good, Guy. Those are some fancy-eatin' tacos!

My only thought was for a 'zestier'(?) color for the background other than the slate gray-blue. And that's probably because I'm going background-changing nuts over here with my own stuff. : )

I liked the header you had up before. But I think this one is really great too.

I love it!

Wouldn't it be fun if the cats looked like you and lorien?

I still think it's the cat's pajamas, as they say.

Clever... here is another one for you... "Was it a cat I saw?" You could do a whole book of these...

Nice illustration. Like all of your work and your blog. Looking forward to seeing more.

The dude cat would be even cooler with a monacle. The bourgeois (sp?) feel to the painting almost demands it. I also like how the siamese feet make it look like she's wearing gloves. Brilliant.

It looks great. However, If you feel it's lacking, how about a funny surprise detail? Say, a lucky mouse making his escape or looking aghast at the horror? Or darkening the background so it looks more mysterious or romantic.

Rodney, go see Dr. Awkward. He is an expert in Palindromentia.

How clever! My daughter's name is also a palindrome.
