she started last week with some cute owl prints on a color block dress. then she asked for a couple of new smaller robots that she could pattern with. i carved up a couple of small blocks and she got busy making new patterns with them. i went and spent some time with a friend, and when i got home she had created this super cute robot/gear tshirt for herself, and i was jealous. thankfully i know the producer of said garment, so now we have matchy-matchy robot shirts. a bit lame. ok, real lame, but we promise not to wear them at the same time. and how could i resist.

a while back, mindy asked for an abstract cat head print, with the intent of making a dress ala the etsy lady that makes the cute cat head dress. even though my image is very different from hers, randomly placed repeating images of a cat head around any dress looks like a rip off of hers. so we've struggled a bit with how to use them. yesterday morning though, mindy woke up with a great idea of how to use our little cat head print. i blocked in a large abstracted cat head shape with masking tape and then she filled it in with the repeating print. it's such a fun icon. it looks like a cross between a heart, superman, and a cat head. a great logo, filled with kitties and paw prints and a great way to utilize the cat head print in a wholly new way.
so while i've been dragging, mindy has really picked up my slack and been producing. now we just have to get these thing out there for sale. but the ink has to dry first.
