DPC week 3 Outtakes

Still having fun with this after 3 weeks. Not getting tired of it. Might work out as a long term project. *grin* Here are my outtakes for week 3:

Mike came home from San Diego today, so we did our household gift exchange in the evening. Then after 10 pm we had Chloe and Derrik over to just hang out and visit until midnight. (This set also happens to contain the last photos I took of Sylvani.)

Party Shots

A few shots taken here during Artana’s un-birthday party.

This is Iko [EYE-koh], The Calico

This is Iko, The Calico. He was a birthday present to me from Mike. I originally met Iko many years ago (2000?) while at a party at his creators home. I fell in love with him instantly, but never never expected that he would actually come and live with me. I just love him, and Mike offered to build him a special perch where he can watch over the house without being molested by the house cats. (My kitty, Sylvani, wanted to groom him.)

His creator is Cat Grey, of You can find her entry about him, near the bottom of the “Art-NFS” page as Calico.

    Medium info: “Fur (including but not limited to coyote, wolf, muskrat, fox, bobcat, raccoon, and marmot); closed-cell foam; pins; glass.”

    Comments from Cat Grey: “I always thought a calico looked like what happens when you take the leftovers from lots of different cats and make something nice out of them.”

Cat makes fabulous things. I also have the “Carrion Bag”, which I really need to take out of the house more often. People love him. (Can also be seen on the “Art-NFS” page.) You should go look around her site now.
