Moomin, in contemplation

2012-11-11_MoominCat.EliotQuote.AliciaI should clarify, Moomin the cat, not Moomin the Finnish cartoon character. Painted from a photo, see below — I got most of her spots right save for that errant blotch on her head. Quote is from TS Eliot, “The Naming of Cats” (yes, I’m linking out to “catquotes dot com”, I may need help).

Sent to my friend Alicia, who recently adopted a cat that sort of looks like Moomin but who hasn’t yet let her know her effanineffable name.

Here’s another etegami, same pose from Moomin… quote from Tove Jannson, the MoominTroll cartoon author.
