Oso, Tsuki and Teo, the three resident cats here at the studio, are portrayed below in vectors, in this concept for a birthday card. The creatures are in fact cuter in real life! J Frizza

A New Show Coming Up Soon!

Thursday, April 28th, 2011

A new show is coming up soon! In the mean time, I’m busy finishing several large painted pieces. The show will include oil and acrylic work on canvas, as well as framed digital images printed on paper. The pieces are colorful and organic, fresh and youthful. Teodoro, one of my helpers, takes a brake in front of two canvases, before resuming the hard work! J Frizza

Teo & Tsuki

Saturday, April 3rd, 2010

Our two new family members, Teo and Tsuki, are growing fast! Teo is a male silver American short hair cat, and Tsuki a female white rag doll cat. The two little cats are now turning into monsters. Both sit right next to me when I work, I can’t help it but draw them incessantly. They are the cutest things. J Frizza

Friends, Candy, Cats and Pumpkins

Saturday, October 31st, 2009

We have two new members in our family!  Teo, the cutest silver tabby in the world, rescued from the animal shelter two weeks ago.  He is wild and intelligent, always hungry and fearless… And a Halloween child, Tsuki (moon in Japanese.) She is a stunning female white baby Ragdoll cat that we just rescued yesterday. The little girl is adorable! For Halloween night, we’ll be playing with the new cats, having a friend over for dinner,  carve pumpkins and give away candy to the kids knocking at the door. Happy Holidays! J Frizza

Remembering Buster & Shilo

Tuesday, October 13th, 2009

Shilo and Buster were the most wonderful cats I ever had. Buster left  suddenly a few weeks ago. This past Friday, Shilo joined his brother at the other side of the rainbow bridge, after the saddest departure. I’m broken hearted, yet I know they are both in a better place now. Farewell my beloved creatures! JF

Cat Weekend – Jaws the cat & Charlie the turtle

Saturday, September 19th, 2009

I enjoy immensely doing sketches of animals. Cats are so gracious. Here is Jaws, my friend’s cat, with Charlie the turtle floating around the fish tank in the back. The image on the left side is the actual scan from my sketch book, the one on the right is the final digital color version. The color proof printed on thick poster paper looks amazing. JF
