Gorgeous and cheeky work by artist Catherine Cronin. The proof that what appears simple can explode with character and mischief. Love this piece!

I love both. Traditional Ukiyo-e Japanese art, waterbased inks and block-printing technique – something that definitely inspired me since a young age, and something I plan on practicing a lot more and soon.
And cats! I love all sorts of pets, and cats are funny, and very inspiring.
This is an article on the exhibition Life of Cats – there is also a link to a virtual tour of the art.

“Brave New Words: a celebration of words and science
For millennia, the sciences have fired the imagination. We react to the world around us with awe and curiosity. In order to understand and experience it, we tell ourselves stories. Some of these stories we describe as fiction and some as non-fiction. But all stories, just like all science, can teach.
These stories, once spread as myths and folklore, now come in the form of prose, comics, blogs and poems. But questions arise about how best to communicate science. How accurate must writers of fiction be? Can non-fiction authors be inventive or poetic? What forms are most effective at imparting knowledge and which are best at gripping the imagination?”
