skinny little guy

I was doodling this character and realized that a scary face was not best, and then aimed for a simple and friendly face. With a kitten on his shirt.  Then I put him onto a mug! Going into the firing see also a lot of blossoms.  One thing I hadn't bargained on with doodling flower patterns on pots was that it would take ALL DAY.  It is fun, but takes like, hours.....rather than a quick dunk into the glaze bucket, it is first this color then that.... but FUN.

Have an awesome Wednesday!

Yes, I agree about the time spent on decorating a surface. You are producing a lot more than I do, so I know it's more time than you want but then again...looking good!

Your skinny guy even has a cat-like face! Looks like your having fun with the deco.

Skinny guy in a cat shirt looks suspiciously like a potter I know... :)
