Right. I tried to get information from Mr Mummific about the gods of ancient Egypt and ended up... Oh well, read for yourself... http://www.ancientegypt101.com/egyptian-gods.html

“What's your name,' Coraline asked the cat. 'Look, I'm Coraline. Okay?'
'Cats don't have names,' it said.

'No?' said Coraline.

'No,' said the cat. 'Now you people have names. That's because you don't know who you are. We know who we are, so we don't need names.” 

- Neil Gaiman, Coraline

Painted a Toyger photo which I'll be using as illustration on my Toyger article at http://www.cat-breeds-info.com - when I have time to download it, hopefully later this week. This is watercolor, gouache, and a touch of colored pencils.

Made a page for some of my Egyptology paintings. This time Mr Mummific was off somewhere in the Duat, so I got to write this on my own. http://www.ancientegypt101.com/ancient-egypt-art.html

Mr Mummific and the Queens of Egypt (well, there is the facts only page as well, link is at the bottom of the story, before the queen list)

Wouldn't it look funny if we behaved like cats: run like berserks every time we have just eaten? (At least Abyssinians have a tendency to do this...)

A work in progress of a Toyger cat. I shall be putting this as illustration to Toyger article on cat-breeds-info.com. Maybe one or two more painting sessions ahead. I was planning to make this into a sketch, but there I found myself again painting each individual cat hair...
