New Look Dash Kitten Blog

Yes, a New Look For Us, and for Mum!

Mum’s New Look is by Greg Vercoe, Cartoonist. This caricature of Mum took a lightning fast five minutes yesterday, when Mum and Dad visited Armageddon here in Wellington, New Zealand. (This is Mum for real here!) Mr Vercoe worked from life but does an amazing job from photographs too! 

So, our Sunday Selfie is Mum as you have never seen her before, and thanks Kitties Blue and the Sunday Selfie for the chance to show this off. 

New Look Time for Dash Kitten

Armgeddon a sort of Comicon type event where some people go all dressed up, and others go to admire them, buy Pop figurines, or try amazingly real looking swords, or play at Stormtroopers.  This is the place to meet artists who work with fantasy worldwide including Weta Workshop, manga afficionados and game developers.  We have a little peep at some of the crazy characters tomorrow on Middle-Earth Monday!

More About Our New Look

We all like to change our image from time to time, and, for us at Dash Kitten, we felt the time was right as we said farewell to Dusty.  So we went for a new theme that is slightly newsier, but not overwhelmingly different. We hope you like it.

Although you will see our familiar sidebar buttons, you might see some new additions and layout tweaks. We are 90% ‘there’ but expect little adjustments now and again as we aim to make us easier to reach, and to read.

  • If anything doesn’t work for you – please let us know, it ll helps us to get it right in the longer term for you are our readers.

Finally, our thanks to our friend Erin, for her tribute to Dusty last week, and for our new Schru – which we are about to try out!!

    Fresh looks are always so exciting aren’t they! I always thought it would be tough to “know when” but it seems to happen naturally.
