Stayed up late last night listening to pop music and painting cups. Nothing too detailed but I had a lot of fun drawing these. Our kitchen had a healthy dose of disco glitter but not nearly enough Halloween. Skulls and superstition FOREVA!
Witch kitsch! I always thought it was a shame to see attitude quotes on t-shirts but never on tea cups. Sure, you might see ‘pimp’ written on a flask or party goblet, but there’s a dearth of bitchiness when it comes to daytime drinks.
Quick note: I tried the Vitrea glass paint first but it went on too light and glossy so I defaulted to my tried and true Pebeo Porcelain markers. I bet the Vitreas would work well for a stained-glass look but I like my outlines black and opaque.
And a quick note on tinsel: Yes, I know it’s a serious danger to cats… I’ve struck a compromise between my tacky aesthetic and Schnitzel’s safety: it stays up through my birthday, but cut short, well out of his reach. Our poor boy is taunted non-stop by these silver strands but, eh, it’s ooonly for a few weeks.
Ohh, I love the cat cup! What a beauty!

Thanks, Jo! I hope it scares the pants off of would-be tea snatchers.
hihi! I love the teacup! Makes me want to do the same thing on a coffee cup:)
You know, Steph! Sometimes I google translate my posts, just so that I can see what it looks like, and that last one seems utterly confusing. Ill try to remember to translate my posts for you, haha. ;)
Hehe, I made some funny charackter the other day, and the space-goldfish was one of them! Lighter days makes me wanna decorate and make everything pretty:) and as always, thnks for commenting!
I bet your cups would be really cute!
Ha, yeah. The wording definitely comes out a little funny through Google translator and there are a couple words it can’t get but no need to translate just for me! I started reading a few blogs in other languages to motivate myself to learn other languages. Um, I haven’t been too successful with that but maybe one day… At any rate, I always enjoy your illustrations.
PS: Thanks for linking The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore awhile back. I was glad it won an oscar last night!
Love. Those. Cups!!!
Thanks! I love your Day of the Dead make-up and will have to check out your blog as Halloween is my favorite holiday.
Oh I love the teacup! Already loved the cat when I saw the first pictures but the last is absolutely hilarious. Haha, need one as well :)
Heh, thanks so much!
Ohhhh I love the cup with ‘tude!
thanks, thanks! :D
These are so funny – I can just imagine poor schnitzel gazing up at that tempting, tempting tinsel all day long!
Yeeeeah, tinsel just-out-of-reach is a cruel thing to do to your cat.
