cat marshmallows

What’s fluffy, sweet and too adorable to eat? Cat marshmallows! Now you can have cat inspired beverages in the comfort of your own home thanks to Yawahada, a Japanese specialist marshmallow shop.

The paw print marshmallows come in three types; for placing milk teas, matcha (green tea) lattes and hot chocolates.

Not only are they super kawaii, these spongy cat paws actually poke through the froth of your drink! Even after the paw melts, it covers your beverage with ‘paw art’.

If you think these paws are the bee’s knees, just wait till you see ‘Café Cat’. When placed in hot chocolate, it looks as though a kitty is peaking through your drink!

Cat marshmallows can be bought separately or in gift sets. The Café Cat and Paw box comes with two cats and two paw prints for 840 yen ($AUD8.99). Yawahada currently only ships within Japan, however if you’re visiting Japan, you’ll able to place an order and get the delicious treats delivered to where you’re staying, you lucky duck you!

ReMoved from HESCHLE on Vimeo.

check out the Behind The Scenes video:

Originally created for the 168 Film Festival, ReMoved follows the emotional story through the eyes of a young girl taken from her home and placed into foster care.

After winning Best Film and Audience Choice at the 168 Film Festival, as well as winning Best Film at the Enfoque Film Festival and being an official selection at the Santa Barbara Independent Film Festival, we’re extremely excited to share ReMoved online.

"It would be impossible to fully understand the life and emotions of a child going through the foster care system, but this short narrative film portrays that saga in a poetic light, with brushes of fear, anger, sadness, and a tiny bit of hope." -Santa Barbara Independent

This short film wouldn’t be possible without the help of some of my incredible friends.

First, my wife, who schemed this project up with me, and was willing to do me the huge favor of writing and producing it. Without her partnership, this would not have happened, and definitely would not have been such a fun process. We were inspired to create this film while in foster parent training.

And then of course Tony Cruz. I asked him early on if he’d be willing to tackle this with me. I wasn’t sure if I was really going to pursue it unless he said yes. He graciously agreed and was, to me, a huge source of confidence in knowing this project would turn out well. He and i discussed everything during the pre-production, and i counted on his creative mind to keep me on the right path. He even persuaded another key creative on the project, Greg Pickard, to join us. On Set Tony was my right hand man. On set, if I just wasn’t feeling it, I had the trust in him to be able to just hand the scene off to him and know he would make it work. And he stepped in plenty of times when i just needed a break, or a separate perspective. Some of the best moments in the film are of his doing. Go check him out at

We were very fortunate with Abby White, the young actress. Without her we wouldn’t have a film.
Her parents were so amazing as well. I don’t think they anticipated how much involvement it would take on their end, but they stuck with it the whole way. Abby’s dad, Andy White from Good Times Guitar, even recorded Abby’s Voice Over for us in his studio.

Shaping NParticles in Maya from Pat Imrie on Vimeo.

*IMPORTANT* Please note that in order for the nParticles to playback or render properly, an nCache will need to be made. Go to nCache>Create new nCache before playing back or rendering. Thanks.P.

This tutorial will cover how to use a piece of geometry to shape Nparticles and how to convert those particles into polygon objects, edit them and then rig them in a standard way using a Wrap Deformer.

I was working on finishing up the Shading video and realized how important it is to go over pencil control first. Being able to successfully manipulate your pencil is an important part of shading.

I decided to throw in an additional lesson into the Figure course. You’ll learn about the “Tripod Grip”, “Overhand Grip”, using your wrist vs. shoulder, and how to use various parts of the pencil to control line weight. This video is free :)

Watch it on

Here’s the finished version of my previous wip (lol it changed so much from the sketch xD )
The lace was fun to make but then, I have to properly learn how to twist it to make it look more natural @_@ 
Btw, the stone there is the “Star of India”, some rare sapphire (that explains all that blue duh )
Still need to get that anatomy right though OTZ
