Last week I went to see The Dark Knight Rises and I was surprised that I really liked Anne Hatheway as Catwoman. She played the character differently than the other actresses in the past have played her. She was very elegant, especially during the Costume Ball scene, on which I based my Inkpad drawing. I have read several articles that have compared her style in this to Audrey Hepburn’s. My favorite Catwoman portrayals are from the camp 1960’s TV show, especially Eartha Kitt and Julie Newmar. Who is your favorite Catwoman?

The other day I found a box of Bicycle brand plastic poker chips in my house that I had originally gotten for “behavior modification” or a token reward system. I realized that the chips were almost the perfect size for my Moo stickers that I had ordered a while back. I put my vector drawings on one side and the QR code on the other. I thought they would be a fun alternative to giving out business cards or to include as a freebie with my Etsy orders. Also, I will send my little tokens of appreciation to anyone who makes a donation to my blog via my Paypal Donate button (see box to the right). Can you suggest any other uses for the chips?
I’m really excited about the new Moo stickers and mini cards I just received in the mail this week! I’m trying out an assortment of my Inkpad images on the stickers and cards because I think my more graphic artwork works better on promotional materials. One of the things I like about Moo is that you can upload images from Flickr so you can constantly update your business cards as your portfolio changes. I also made a sticker of my self portrait with the QR code, and I was uncertain whether a smaller QR code would still work, but it does work! I will have lots of cards to give out at the upcoming Apple Store Event this Saturday and the Mobile Arts Conference at the end of the month.
I also will be putting new stickers in my Etsy store and will also include bonus stickers with all print orders, so stop by and take a look.

I found a neat new iPhone app called Wordfoto and I wanted to use it with an Inkpad picture I created. I used the words Meow and Purrr for the Catwoman theme. I thought the words were too overwhelming for the picture so I imported the Inkpad picture and the Wordfoto picture into Sketchbook Pro to erase or lighten the words. I think Wordfoto really works well with comic book related pictures. Finally I imported the picture to ArtRage to give it the watercolor paper texture.
