I drew a picture.
First it was a sketch. My friend Damien loves Manatees, and has been studying them for years. As an artist I have found a lot of pleasure making cards for my friends.
This Manatee's eyes were already telling me hello, and he wasn't even finished. Can you see it?
Clearly I felt I was already onto something as I continued literary diarrhea next to my cute sea creature. I was trying to figure out how I could educate kids about the Manatee. What are the hazards, and why have they been on the endangered species list. All these things are highly important to me. How can we protect these sweet wonderful creatures?!
Have any of you been inspired in such a way where you can't put the pencil down? Isn't it an amazing feeling?
I was quite content with my final product. How cute is my manatee? And I don't mean that as an ego maniac. I just love them, the sweet Sea Cow.
I wasn't even sure what I was going to do with the little guy, I printed the card and sent it away, but I was unsatisfied. Until one day I was talking to my friend Lauren and happened to have purchased a piece of baby clothing for a friends shower. I looked at my Manatee and the clothing and then....
Cute! Lauren and I both said it in unison, we could have joined a cappella group. I'll say it again, "CUTE!!!"
Later on that day, as I was pondering this moment of "Eurika!" I came up with the name of this educational company: Catch The Cuteness.
My Manatee was created January 15th, 2014. And Catch The Cuteness was born on March 27, 2014. It's been a long road of sorting out the right images, and the right product to frame my work. I hope you are pleased with the final product as much as I am!
But I still have more to tell you...and It's about my favorite little travel mudbugs I call. Shrimp n' Lobster.
