WIP & my new favorite character

I'm in the middle of another softie, but I've been in the middle of it for a while. I think I have a case of what my mother calls "The Slows".

So lets talk about Kima and her Kup,Kup. You've probably seen him--Kup,Kup is a gray guy with rosy cheeks. I think he comes across as a wonderful blend of Japanese, German, and Spanish cuteness. I love so much that Kima has created an entire character who has continuing adventures! She has a profile on her website that describes all of Kup,Kup's favorite things and pastimes. He loves tomato sauce and collecting things in carts. How awesome is that! He has a best friend. It's so fun that Kima keeps true to the profile in all her work, so you can look through it all say say, "Oh, look. There's Kup,Kup enjoying a bottle of tomato sauce on a fine day," or, "Kup,Kup and Lolo better be careful pushing those carts around in the snow. If they tip over, they're going to have to organize them all by color again."

Kima makes really great buttons too. These photos were taken by Kima & used with her permission. They are the Kup,Kups I had to have from her Etsy shop. Too terribly clever!

Don't you just hate it when "The Slows" come to your doorstep? I find that the best remedy is to get out and look at some art to get fired up. Then come back home and work on something small and quick. That'll usually jumpstart everything again. :-)
