washing cats...don't try this at home!

copyright and by kindest permission of the artist
In a tiny paper universe Senorita Cara Carmina and her four cats have many adventures.  They go to the fish market, play hide and seek, and go on a hot air balloon ride.  So after all that excitement sometimes they need a wash.  Here's "Washing Cats," by Norma Andreu (the grown-up, real-life Cara Carmina), a Mexican artist now living in Montreal.  These dioramas are funny, inventive fantasies that make me laugh out loud and dream a bit about getting in there with them.  Look, here's some more at Norma's blog.  I adore how she makes these simple linear figures so rich in presence.  But this isn't all she does, so be sure and visit her website for a cheerful look around.  Would you like a photoprint or even your very own diorama?  Check out her Etsy shop.  I'm so delighted to close out my Friday night by spotting the fish in every cat scene!
