Clover Chroma is a digital artist we love
Cynthia is in her closet.
Distractedly performing her daily lint rolling ritual.
Purging her clothes of accumulated cat hair. When –
Penelope charges into the closet with her computer secured under her arm and dragging the printer behind her.
Cynthia starts sneezing, trips over Penelope’s printer cord, and lands sideways onto a huge ball of waded up sticky roller sheets.
penelope kitten (squeaking): hi hi.
Cynthia: Oh hi, P. What’s up?
Penelope opens the computer to the Clover Chroma Etsy shop.
penelope kitten: i ordered these pretty pixel pictographs. please print them for me.
Cynthia takes a look.
Cynthia: Oh, these are so sweet and whimsical and unique! It looks like the artist draws an original design over a photograph of nature.
Cynthia: I love how the lines are clean and simple but the photograph adds a pop of color and another layer of visual interest.
Cynthia: How amazing that when these two basic elements are combined, so much personality and depth shines through. It’s nature combined with technology!
Cynthia (marveling): Artists are magical, aren’t they?
Cynthia: Awww… what a great find, P! I love them!
penelope kitten: me too.
Cynthia: So where are you going to hang them?
penelope kitten: on the walls of my condo.
Cynthia looks confused.
Marcy: She means the cardboard Amazon boxes she’s been hoarding all week.
penelope kitten: yeah yeah. got two rooms and a patio. so far.
Cynthia wanders into the living room to check out P’s new pad.
She stops in her tracks as she sees a giant mound of cardboard, crumpled tissue paper, and ripped-up newspaper strewn all over the floor.
Horrified, Cynthia rushes back to the computer to print out the artwork Penelope ordered in hopes that it will transform the trash heap into something more palatable. And livable.

Btw, we also positively adore Clover Chroma’s poetic prose.
