Color fix to previous image. Self-portrait representing my major interests and hobbies, all done in illustrator/photoshop. Comments & questions welcome, and again... I'd like to thank/curse kjh000 for the shove off the edge of the cliff that got me to do this (and the sleepless nights. lol)

interesting- like the color and arrangement of the objects. I wasn't sure if the glasses while swimming were intended as a joke... but it was kinda funny. nice portrayl of hobbies. :)

Actually, I left the glasses on as my head (and the eyes & lips) are the only photographic parts of this. The "Me" as you will. The swimming portion is representative of a hobby and therefore kind of separate.

Also for the really confused... I play Spades online, and the variation I play is called "Suicide". Just about anybody will tell you I spend a wee tad too much time doing this, so it's correspondingly large here. lol

lol! I wondered about that rope... ^_^ I'm glad to see you posting. ;) I don't mind the cursing. :P Interesting way to make a portrait. I could not have done a thing like this. Aha, so you like cooking too. I love cooking. It's almost soothing for me. Like meditation... Zen-style I would think since I never quite know how things will end but take the route that unfolds before me. (And believe it or not it is even quite edible too. ^_^)

This is very cool ! And I looked at your first posting, big time difference ! This is a very original idea & I hope it catches on, it's an interesting way to introduce yourself, instead of tamely listing your hobbies & interests, you've shown them. Cheers to you & cheers to Klas for the push. Nice job Cat !

*blush* ty. Although there were some hobbies I couldn't show pictorially. A number of my friends are quite happy that there was no way I could figure out to show "Jeopardy". They all think I'm a dork, but they're wrong! Alex rocks! (well... ok... I might be a dork...) 8•P

Well, I take this as a personal afront ... What? Cheesecake did not deserve it's own visual representation?

Yeah, yeah ... waayyyyy too late ... and the humour is waning ... or is it waxing, nutz, never can get that right.

Really nice work and I like the overall balance of the composition and colour palette. Now, there is a question, I would like to pose ... any significance to the colour choices here? Enquiring minds want to know. And between the two versions, I am hard pressed to pick, truth be told. Soooo ... I am wondering if your dissatistifaction with the 'flattening' is purely from an artistic perspective or perhaps, another layer to your 'onion.'

'K, that last sentence has reminded me full force ... that it is time to say ... great work and look forward to seeing more. (Pedant? Who me? No, more pedantic, I would say ;) .)

This rocks! AND you have my glasses (so that's where they went...I've been looking for them everywhere)

Don't be ashamed of Jeopardy; it's when you start watching the price is right that things start getting weird.

I would also like to know 'why the blue'. Was there any reason, or is it simply your favourite colour?

I think it's very creative, and hope to see more like it in the future! :)

Sorry it took me so long to respond here, no Les, sorry, cheesecake is a subcategory and did not make the "cut" 8•P.

The colors are simply colors that I appreciate and enjoy seeing, no other significance other than that, and yes, it is simply my artistic vision of the richness of these original colors that made me dissatisfied with the other version.

Sophie, I'd give you your glasses back, but well... I need them so I can stop banging my toe into the dresser. So kind of you, thanks!

And no... it gets weird when you start watching "Wheel of Fortune", cuz it's on after Jeopardy & the remote's across the room, and you solve the puzzles in the form of a question. *grin*

I'd never seen this....
So this is you...:) I feel like I have been called out on the stage on the Jenny Jones show and found out the person I know and love is not some little cat character with her tongue playfully curling around my ankle...:) are pretty. You appear a bit "bookish"...with that librarian's stern, no-nonsense stare...and the hair up and glasses. Bookish does not mean any means. Take the hair down...and seduce us with that smile...and those provocative eyes....yeah....take off that guarded look....but can leave those fishnets on......:) Hubba-hubba....meow! :)

I came back to your site to download this one. I love this whimsical picture; the colors are so bright and vivid. I like to see art this is outside the box and something different. You did a great job on this one…Thanks for sharing!
