Your artwork is beautiful. I love the banner on your blog especially, and the "cheetahs" joke was great, too. Thanks for sharing.

I don't think I've ever seen a poker game this majestic and beautiful! Wonderful illustration and a great concept!

Gorgeous illustration. I love your soft feathery technique, yet you still have a good amount of contrast in your work, great colours too, love the idea / scene :)

Beautiful Kathy. Your work always has that lovely glow to it, and you've created such a beautiful setting. I love the way the cheetah is leaning over studying the cards!

This illustration fits the joke wonderfully, but it also transcends it--even without the punchline, it's a beautifully surreal image. Incredibly lovely.
