|Steve Gadlin and Cynthia|
Cynthia: One of the highlights of the Los Angeles Feline Film Festival this past September was meeting the sweet silly super Steve Gadlin of I Want To Draw A Cat For You fame.
Marcy (snickering): Are you two related?
Cynthia (puzzled): No.
Marcy: Are you sure?
Cynthia: Yes. Why?
Marcy: Uh yeah. So did you actually look at that photo?! You look like twins. Or did everybody at that crazy cat festival wear cat shirts, glasses, and cat ears?
Cynthia: But Steve isn’t wearing cat ears.
Marcy (disgusted): Sigh. Forget it. Hey! Did you get my drawing?
Cynthia: Yes! I spent about a minute telling Steve about you and then in about 2 minutes he drew this –

Cynthia: A Marcy fashion cat. Complete with black eye patch and purse. Whoopy!
Cynthia: Steve was one of the most successful contestants on Shark Tank last year. He convinced Mark Cuban to give him $25,000 to expand his already successful cat drawing business. And this year he started filming Steve Gadlin’s Star Makers, a Chicago based talent show.
Steve Gadlin is one of those entrepreneurs you really root for. He’s kind, quirky, enthusiastic, and just… goes for it. I mean, not many people could make a lucrative business out of drawing stick figure cats.

Cynthia: Oooohhhhh… if he’s at CatCon LA this June, I’m totally going to get a Penelope Kitten drawing too.
penelope kitten: totes!
Marcy: Or you could order one off of his website. Duh.
Cynthia: Well, looks like he is taking a break from drawing cats, so we’ll sing his cat song instead.
Sing it with me kitties!
Cynthia and Penelope Kitten dance around and sing.
Marcy stalks off.
Cynthia: Where are you going, Marcy?
Marcy secretly logs onto the computer and furtively fills out an application to be on Steve Gadlin’s Star Makers. She hits “send”.
Marcy (triumphantly): I’m gonna be a STAR!
