Hi, my name’s Cathie – although I am mostly animated and a bit of a character – I am a real person and like to think of myself as a digital artist. I occasionally revert to my original persona – taking “straight” photos!

    samedog’s a big fan of yo-yos as you can see from my logo. We used to enter comps held at the local department store’s and winning a new packet of strings was like gold to us…
