Don't Wake the Kitty, Digital Art

This week's Illustration Friday's theme is Whisper.  It's kind of a funny theme for me and my household. My daughter has told me many times that none of us know how to whisper.  It actually comes up in conversation more than you would think... There's a constant refrain of, "you know I can hear you, right?" She'll shake her head and add, "Yep, that's right, none of us knows how to whisper."

Whisper are fun, for secrets and talking when you're not supposed to.  Whispers are like little surprise packages.  You're leaning in, you're about to share something good, something nobody else can hear.

Or maybe not, maybe it's bad.  Maybe you're going to tell me I have something stuck in my teeth.  Or toilet paper stuck to my shoe.  My neighbor never yelled at her kids.  She would always lean in and whisper.  It would make me so curious, what are you saying?  They were always soooo calm afterwards.  Maybe it was some sort hypnosis clue, like "rooster" and then they would all just settle down.  I tried it for awhile, because it seemed so effective. But, I would just whisper whatever I  was going to yell... And of course, everyone around heard me, because I can't whisper.  

It's a good thing we don't live in the bird house tree!!
