Selected Posts from The Daily Cat Doodle
The Daily Cat Doodle archive now contains over a hundred posts, which you can browse or search via keyword on the blog’s home page. Here’s a list of a few of my favorites for quick reference.
For my mother’s birthday this past July, I rounded up 1950s-era doodles made by Jim Lunde, one of her colleagues in the design department at The Container Corporation of America. The resulting post, Priscilla Doodle Party, is one of my favorites. (Jim Lunde was a genius!)
Any Twilight Fans out there? If so, you may enjoy the blog post Flora & Max for its references to the inter-species love affair between human Bella & vampire Edward. (Plus, check out the doodle reenactment of the famous scene in the parking lot where Bella nearly gets crushed and Edward saves the day.)
If you like looking at drawings made by other people’s kids, you are likely in the minority, but may enjoy the post Kid Stuff, which contains a few of mine. There’s a pretty nice portrait of George Washington in here that I drew at my (apparent) creative peak, at age 6.
When I can, I like to work some of my mother’s artwork into the blog, since her images always delight and inspire me, and remind me where I got my itch to draw. This post for Mothers Day contains a mini-tribute to my mom, Priscilla Tuttle, and includes a few examples of things she made for us when we were kids.
I’ve always kind of dug Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera, both as characters and artists. Costumes & Customs shows Charlotte and Daisy Mouse decked out as the famous pair for a costume party on a recent trip to Mexico.
This post was inspired by the film Casablanca, which I went to see a digitally-remastered copy of last March on the big screen, in honor of its 70th anniversary. This cartoon is a bit on the talky side, but if you are a Casablanca fan, you just might like this one, too.
Our cat Blackie loves to bake, so there are probably a dozen different cake doodles in the archive, in honor of various friends’ birthdays. Once you’re on The Daily Cat Doodle home page, just do a keyword search for birthdays and they’ll all pop right up.
Every now and then, The Daily Cat Doodle chronicles news outside the household. The Red Carpet includes cats and mice wearing my favorite fashions from the 2012 Academy Awards, including those worn by Rooney Mara, Michelle Williams, and of course, Angelina.
I also had to tune in when Madonna gave her much anticipated halftime show at the 2012 Super Bowl XLVI. (Whatever you think of her, like Charlotte, she’s a star, and not to be ignored.) My favorite part of this doodle though was sneaking in a reference to singer MIA’s naughty gesture in the background.
The Cast of Characters
Charlotte, an elegant tortie, loves fashion and hunting. Alas, she hates Max.
Blackie, a dapper tuxedo cat, carries an unrequited torch for Charlotte.
Max is the only one of the cats who, in real life, isn’t a mouser. So all the mice love him.
Flora Mouse is Max’s girlfriend. She is a romantic and loves the movie, Twilight, for its interspecies love theme.
Giselle is Charlotte’s French maid. She loves to cook, but not to clean.
Daisy Mouse is Charlotte’s personal assistant and frequent travel companion.
Little Mouse is Flora’s niece. When I go on trips to Wisconsin, she gladly comes along.
Aaron is the other resident artist, taking over any creative tasks I’m not able to get to. He and Blackie are pals.
Baby Woot joined the household at Easter, when Charlotte found her inside a chocolate egg. Her first name is Stella.
