Serval next to a standing Giraffe. The Giraffe is out of frame above the knees.

Another piece I put in the Vancoufur art show, this is a Serval next to a Giraffe.

Tria markers, brown brush-tip pen, white gel pen, and Prismacolor pencil crayons.

Not actually Servals

Looks like Serval is a word popping up in spammy text. Mostly in "experienced serval stages".

I got bored after a page of search results of reporting bot accounts on LiveJournal, but did kind of enjoy the surreal phrases in some of the spammy posts.

Travelable serval is the northbound pinto centeredness.

Serval was very excellently scrawling.

Servals may forcefully coalesce.

As there were a whole two of them and I feel like noting that:

Cool Cats by Torakamikaze has a hip Serval in the bottom right corner of the design (and there's a poster version on the artist's website)

Art on napkins

Had lunch with various people at a pancake place today, and there were crayons so, after sorting through finding all the colours, I drew on napkins.

Black-backed Jackal. (Brown, black, red, orange and yellow crayons.)

Sleeping Serval. (Brown, black, orange and yellow crayons.)

I resurrected my tradition from some six years back, I'm fairly sure at the same restaurant; in 2004 it was an anthro' Flying Green Serval.

In the category of why not, I've given Flying Green Servals a subdomain of their very own:

Right now the most recent artwork on there is from a year ago. That may change, as I tend to find domain names inspiring.

Cat Tales

Today was cool, but I'm still behind on posting about the weekend in Spokane. I've been saving this until I'd done some sorting through the many photos and had some ready to share.

Eateries weren't all that are listed in the guidebook to the Spokane area. Also in there, under attractions, was a place called Cat Tales. The blurb about it was pushing the family fun at a zoo angle, giving an impression of a place which I at least wouldn't have been comfortable going to... but we checked out the website and found that the cats (and a few other animals) there are rescues, largely from the private sector.

We went on Sunday. It was amazing.

Needless to say we took many, many photos. A few of mine:


The Bobcats stole my heart.

I want to figure out who's who in the folder currently named Leopards and Jaguars: the only name I'm sure of so far is Maya, a melanistic South American Jaguar.

The Caracal, Monster, stayed cosy in his den.

The Servals ventured out despite the cold day, and oddly enough I took by far the highest number of photos of them. I haven't even started sorting through those...

About the con

All Fur Fun was enjoyable. At 110 attendees, it was a bit smaller than either of us expected. (Going by the idea that only half of attendees pre-registered, and that there were 95 pre-registrations, we though there'd be around 150 - 200 people.) It was small and friendly, with lots of seeing the same people over and over in the lobby and such, which was grand.

We did a lot of lurking in the art show, and rounds of the dealers' den. I nearly got a badge but didn't as I'm too fussy about my characters. One of these days!

I had a totally smooth experience with hanging stuff in the art show, discounting a slight ache in the fingers after writing out what's needing on the various bits of paper. Nice staff, and marvellous supplies (there were even, to prevent the clips from scratching, little bits of matte-board in all sorts of colors). Two of my pieces sold. I have no idea who to, it was a silent auction by bidder number rather than name thing, but they both went to the same whoever-it-was. One of the pieces, the Caracal noble, went for minimum bid, and the other, Serval with fish, for five dollars above, after someone had bid the mimimum. I'm thrilled.
