Kitten Face comes to life...

So i have decided to start a new side project, a blog called Kitten Face, which follows the everyday adventures of a little cat with a big imagination.

This all sprung from doing the sketchbook project and having to work around a consistent theme for an extended period of time.  I really enjoyed having a focus and a chance to develop all the ideas that were floating around my head.  It also helped me to learn more and refine some of my techniques and skills.

So after this positive experience, I thought that it might be a good idea to maintain some direction in my creative life.  I brainstormed some ideas and Kitten Face is what I came up with. The Kitten Face name has been up on my blog for awhile as a title over an old photograph, and I always thought that it would make a good character.  Then I noticed that a kitten-like character was emerging from all my sketchbook entries.  So I combined them, and voila.

I will certainly still be journaling here, as the song says 'wild horses couldn't drag me away' (such a great image).  I am thinking of Kitten Face as more of a secret world tucked away amidst the vast plains of the internet, full of tiny adventures waiting to be discovered.
