... a lady in Los Angeles wrote to me a few days ago to tell me she was "so enamored" of my sailor Hep Cat, that she'd actually had him tattooed on her wrist! She wrote, "I love him. I had been in search of the perfect, fun cat tattoo", and had found Hep Cat's picture on Pinterest.
Well, I can tell you I was speechless for more than a few seconds at first! Who would've thunk it? Then I sort of screamed (AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!!!!!!!) and thanked the lady for the great compliment, as well as for being so decent as to let me know (boo to people who shamelessly copy your ideas and work without first asking, or crediting you!).
When I told the hubs, he said, "Sue her for an arm" -- that's his humour for you! Do you have tattoos, or have you ever loved someone's art so much that you had it tattooed on you? The lady said she would send me better pictures of her new tattoo when it was all healed, so I'm looking forward to that! "Thank you for creating something so lovely that it inspired me to have it forever!" she wrote, which is certainly a sweet, though most unexpected, tribute!
