Kit and Kitty are about everything happy and positive in romantic love, and that by definition included sexual desire for each other.

Kit and Kitty in Love is about the feeling of being in love. I sketched up the whole concept back in the 1990’s, and the pencil drawings sat waiting in my files as life took me in other directions in all the years since. Last summer, my first as a full time artist, I pulled out the collection and it was apparent the timelessness of the images remained as relevant as ever. It looked well worth getting the emotions contained in the set out to the rest of the world. I took up the long task of adding color to a subset of the original collection that could best tell a story and most quickly instill the feeling of being in love. I needed to update a few elements of technology depicted in the original art to keep up with the 21st century, but all else between my matched set of over the top too perfect romantic fools remained the same – as enduring as the age old feeling .
The soft tender mood called for a physical treatment, real colorful paint and brush stokes on real paper, rather than the all too sterile cleanliness that naturally flows from the expedience of digital art. I fixed on gouache for the paint and 300lbs hot press arches for the base. Grey ink lines, following my original drawings, and an occasional stroke of pastel, round out the effects. Hand painting everything is what took up most of the last eight months, with layout and propagation taking up the remainder, but I feel the result was well worth it. It is my first published book and the first of a series available on Kindle Amazon with more stores to follow. Please keep up with the intimate life of Kit and Kitty on this website and soak up the good feelings permeating their not quite but almost perfect anthropomorphic world.
Two long absent friends greeting with a hug knew they couldn’t be just friends anymore.
Fireworks, they get so clichéd these days but seeing them through her eyes is always something special. Watching the colors on her face and seeing the farkles on the darks of her eyes, thats something to remember. Another year, another celebration, she is still with you and you are still in love with her, watching the flashes shimmer and hearing the little explosions all over again. Blue, red, yellow orange, green, indigo, violet, white – all the colors of light played on a pallet of blackness. Each a new mood, every moment a new surprise – just like her on a summer night.
