This tale by Mike Steeden is one of the most imaginative stories I have ever read.
Using street art, I will present a feel that moves along with the book’s official blurb.
‘A book of mind boggling time-travel,
feverish sex, syrupy romance,
ho hum history,
a dark future, The Moon,
Paris and Berlin,
human consciousness, infinity,
a tongue in cheek take on all things carnal,
art for art’s sake
and three thoroughly mad yet oh so delightful gals’
I drew one a one-eyed blue-eyed cat, for Mike. Mike, Eye’m sure this is nothing you ever imagined. However, after reading “The Blue-Eyed Cat”, which I thoroughly enjoyed,I was inspired to this! Also, I believe the video below is apropos.

Wonderful and entertaining post Resa. Almost read like a story.
Just so you know, my favorite was the one with you in it.
I was hoping you’d say that! 😉💜
Yeah, all of them were great and creative, but… that one stood out for me. 😃
Thank you, Beth!!
Bowie is always welcome. And what colours!
Lots of fun here!
It seems like now that I have to stay home, I’m busier than ever!
I want to do that movie game!
What a wonderful collection of murals woven into a great story. Is that you in front of la Muerta?
Yeah, that’s me… and home on the range!
I was working in Ottawa. It was 100f and humid. My hair didn’t dry for days.
Still, I quite like the shot!
You look great from the back. I remember being in Ravenna, Italy when it was 104º F with 99% humidity. I moved and I was soaking wet. I really appreciate out dryness when it gets hot. 104º F is tolerable in 10% humidity.
Thank you, and humidity rules the summer here! I’m getting ready to be damp for a few months! That is if I can go outside for walks?
I loved it. It’s a story book of street art and blue eyed cats. Absolutely fabulous. ❤
Yes, it isa storybook! ❤
Oh, well done, you, and you even showed us your good side. (Now running, ducking, and weaving which is hard to do while laughing.) 🙂 Happy Tuesday, Resa.
Glad you’re laughing, and good thing you’re running, ducking and weaving!
Happy Tuesday, Janet!
I am sure that you, young Resa, like me, are a traveller in time. You couldn’t do what you do over multiple art genres otherwise. Only time can point the way. Discovering and giving a safe house for street art to lie down in and rest, an act of worthy charity; your own subline artwork, photography and rather special gowns…sufficient to giving rise to any red-blooded chap to take a swift cold shower…all worthy causes. Yet somewhere within that bustling combination of genres you find time to read my book of peculiar time-traveling indelicacy. My sincere thanks, young Resa. Herewith my anthem, maybe not as good as DB, yet it has served me well. Regards, The Old Fool
A snippet from the lyric;
‘…The years run too short and the days too fast
The things you lean on are the things that don’t last
Well it’s just now and then my line gets cast into these
There’s something back here that you left behind
Oh time passages
Buy me a ticket on the last train home tonight…’
TOF! I sure enjoyed this song!
I also enjoyed all of the many compliments you have included herein… especially young! LOL!
It was a pleasure reading your book, and I look forward to the next.
It was a lot of fun making this post for you, and I am thrilled that you are happy with it!

Reblogged this on – MIKE STEEDEN – and commented:
Kind words and art, from a kind young Resa, a gal of many talents.
Thank you, Mike!
That’s a very intriguing cover …
It is somewhat indicative of the book. 😀
I just love this, you’ve done a fabulous layout for Mike’s “The Blue Eyed Cat”. Everything is so top notch and over the top. Love it completely. Let me congratulate Mike on such a splendid tale, but that’s nothing new for Mike! xoxo
I’m glad you like this…review of sorts. I thought .. Why not? Mike wrote a fab book!
I’m better with visuals than words.. a few words okay.
Well, sometimes I’m like Foghorn Leghorn… I mean I know when to shut up… if you say I’ve said enough, I know enough is enough…. You don’t have to tell me twice… It’s not like I’m a wordy person, usually…. I just know when people are sick and tired of what I have to say… Not that I have a lot to say …. So just let me know and I’ll shut up …. Or if ….(ad infinitum!)
I’ll let you know, I know you are not the talky type. lolol! xoxoxoxo
Right, well, I better get back to the new Art Gown. I can talk all I want to them, as they know I’m not the talky type! xoxoxoxo
xoxoxo, never stop talking to us…we would go as crazy as bats in our hair!
Le shivers! Bat hair! xoxoxo
I thought you’d like that hehe! Xo
Ahh, Count Batula!
That’s him, so scary!
IKR! Scarier than ‘Oron’s new Gravatar!
Not that scarier, god no.
Right! I can’t believe he paid for that!
At least the bat emoji look okay!
Wow Resa you really are friends with the stars, how great was it for Mr Steeden to comment and reblog your post!
And who knew you were so photogenic yourself? Though I’m sure a view of you from the opposite angle would be better. Stay safe and thanks for sharing.
TOF… (nickname) is a fun guy, and the read was unique and fab!
It was an honour and fun to do this post for him.
Thanks for the photo compliment! Thing is I’m camera shy from the other angle. You can see the other side, and find out why I’m camera shy!
Hello Resa, I don’t think you have any reason to be shy about your appearance, you look amazing (you have a feline beauty like Eartha Kitt – great cheekbones).
So as you have shared a picture then it’s only fair I do the same. You might see why I get mistaken for another certain Jedi Knight…
Yep, that’s me and a “real” lightsaber – no FX were used in this photo just a camera phone picture.
Stay safe and well.
Oh wow! Amazing pic! You are sooo cute!
Thank you for the compliment. Eartha Kitt is awesome!
Hello again, now I’m gonna blush! I don’t think I’ve been described as cute before (well not online anyway!) Hopefully I will look even more like my doppleganger soon when I receive my new Jedi costume I’ve ordered. Thanks for your kind comments and stay safe.
I’ll stay safe if you stay safe! Wow… your own Jedi costume. I’ll want to see that posted on your bolg!
No problem, I think there might be one or two pictures on the way. I’m just waiting for delivery then I might need to make a few alterations to the costume here and there – once done I’ll get the photos uploaded.
A wonderful way to share the excitement of “The Blue Eyed Cat.” I believe in the possibility of time travel. Perhaps not in our existence, but in others. And who know, maybe in ours as well. Take care, my time traveler, friend. Hugs
I’ve always wanted to be in some other times. It would be great to witness some of the positive times and places in history… as a woman. Like, the day we got the vote… or meet Nellie McClung, or Queen Elizabeth I, or ride with Rosa Parks… and on and on!
Sexy post with a Bowie tune to capt it off? Can’t beat that.
Oooo, sexy you say? Okay!!! Lol! Can’t beat a Bowie top off! 😀
Bowie was everything.
He died too, soon!
Much too soon
Wow, Resa, your hand picked murals paint a fabulous picture of what must be a fast paced and ever changing reality within the pages of ‘The Blue Eyed Cat’,…
And your hand drawn interpretation is way too cute! What a sexy, sensual puddy-tat… 🙂
It was a pleasure putting this together!
It is true, time changes quickly in The Blue-Eyed Cat!
Puddy was fun to draw. At least I have a few pages of drawing paper left. Can hardly wait for the art supplies store to open! 😀 xoxoxoxox
Oh no – I do hope the art supplies store opens soon. Otherwise the ‘lack of creative art’ withdrawals could be soon upon you!
Oh yes – this is a bona fide dis-ease. It generally manifests in a rash……. lol
yes, a dis-ease! xoxoxoxo
Look at you, Miss Sorceress! Your turn to tell a tale with images! What a wonderful visual blurb. Of course, having you in one of the pictures makes this all the better.
Thank you Thunder! It was fun doing this post for Mike!
The book was a fab read, and I’m only so-so at book reviews, unless it’s a Shehanne Moore historical romance.
Yeah, every once in awhile I get a sot of me taking shots of street art. My niece says it adds proof to my claims. 🧐
You are so good at highlighting people, Resa. So generous.
It is a good thing to include you once in a while!!
Okay! Blogging is more fun with friends!
This is true.
Such amazing creative power!
Thank you, Cindy! 🎭🎨
And now I can start my day with Bowie! Perfect!
Breakfast = Bowiefast!
I love the creativity behind this. After all, you do have more than a few pics of murals in your collection. Stay safe.
Frank,I have thousands of pics. LOL! Although I have many un-posted pieces, I think during this time of C19, I’ll use up some of my stash. After all, he artists cannot paint (legally) and I cannot walk far from home.
You stay safe, too!
Now is a good time to clean out the blog closet!
Every post is so incredible
Reblogged this on lampmagician.
You and your wonderful works are always welcome 👍🤗
Well done, Resa! The art work is fantastic and love the shot with you in it. 🙂 Also, the “ho hum history” made me smile. Thanks for introducing Mike’s book which sounds like a must-read. 💗
Yeah, the image for Ho-hum history was the most difficult to select!
I adore the art in the pic with me. ❤
Mike's book is very cool!
Excellent selection here and… are you wearing skinny jeans in that picture?! Trendy!
Tights, I’m wearing tights. I should wear baggies? I think not!
Old jeans could make into a neat Art Gown!
Why not a onesie with tights over the top?
Ah…like too, much bulk?!
Nah! You really suit the tights, excellent choice. I also wish I had as much hair as you do. I’d do a man bun.
I hate man buns!!!!!!
Well, I can’t do a man bun. Unless I glued some bread to the back of my head. Which I’m not going to do. Because man buns are, indeed, dumb.
I was thinking of inventing man bun snips! Haha I’m on your blog!!
Man bun snips? Well, no, my blog is only for the most serious and elegant of things. Man bun snips with champagne, for example.
Never turn down champagne, madam.
This does feel like a story with each art telling a prose story of its own.
The best one was with you in it. 🙂 Miss you Resa. 🙂
Thank you! It was fun to tell a tale this way!
Lol! Glad you liked the one with me inn it. That piece of art was incredibly striking! 😀 x
You are welcome, Resa.
You should continue telling stories that way. It was a fun read and the art like always brilliant. 🙂
What an intriguing way to convey the blurb! My favorites were the clock and the ship. It sounds like a great read.
It was a fab read! The ship is a wonderful painting. So is the clock, but it is part of a larger mural, whereas the ship is all on its own. Glad you got to see this post!
Oh, Resa, your image storytelling of Mike’s tale is fabulous! What a multi-talented girl you are! Kudos to both storytellers and ….the gorgeous model/photographer 😉 xoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxo
It was fun to do. I’ve got thousands of pics of street art. Many I have never used.
Yes… model photographer…. erm!
Love to all, and a wish for a bone to Hera!
xoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxo ❤ xoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxo
Model and model photographer actually! 😉
More love to you and Hera’s already chewing her bone …she says thankwoof!!!!!
What a lovely surprise to find a book from Mike here, Resa. He is a phenomenal storyteller. I love the murals you chose to highlight his book — and the David Bowie video (how I miss him). I also enjoyed Mike’s lovely comment to you — along with the Time Passages video. I haven’t thought of that one in ages. Hugs to you both.
Ahh, hugs back Teagan!
Guess where I am…on The Delta Pearl. I was reading it about an hour ago, and got called away! I’m back now!
So, I enjoyed Mikes book, and I had a lot of fun making the post. His comment was most gracious!
I’ve found a bunch of pigs street art, and will post my Snort Stories article after my next post. Next week some time.
I am approaching it a bit different. I think it will be lovely!
I do have a question, but will ask you in a comments when I finish Chapter 31!
You are welcome to use my Yahoo email. It should be in your blog, since I follow you.
Anyway, I can’t wait!
(I was just now writing the next episode of the Delta Pearl too.) Thank you for your visits. ❤
Just great, Resa.
Thank you, Bumba!
You have woven a wonderful piece. Fascinating blue eyes of the cat and damsel.Whatelse have you got in your stash?
I have lots & lots in my stash! However, I am dreaming about getting back out there, and finding more. I miss the uber long walks (so do my thighs!!!)
