Murakami

My lovely husband, Andrew, adores reading Haruki Murakami. You see, Murakami is apparently a total cat-person and keeps a menagerie of cat figurines about his writing desk (or so I've heard).  Anyway, some months back I made Andrew a strange little cat figurine out of clay and named him Murakami.  I thought that he would enjoy looking at it while he worked. Murakami has an oddly flat face, minty green paws, a gold glitter-dipped tail and a braided collar that even I am envious of.  This little dude has been sitting on our desk for several months and I keep imagining him in all sorts of silly scenarios.  I think that he might appear in a mini-comic sometime in the future, but in the meantime I drew this little illustration of him.
