Illustration Friday -- Cats














So, here is my first attempt at Illustration Friday. I have not sat down to do any "real" drawing since 1991 or 1992. I have done some doodling and plenty of cartoonish work for my kids and wife's job, but never anything else.

I'm looking forward to doing this weekly (as time permits). It seems like fun and a good way to release the tensions of the previous week.

The picture for this week's topic, Cats, is a rough representation of my two cats, Spike and Nigel. They seem to very loving of one another. Almost too loving...

Lou,
I love your picture. For someone who is "out of practice," you did a wonderful job of creating a drawing that resonates coziness and contentment. I'm so excited to see more of your work!

Cate,

Thanks for the compliment. I also look forward to doing more work.

Lee,

Thanks for the welcome. I really can't wait to do more. I may add more of my older stuff later as well.

Lou said...

Thanks, Friend.

I guess some talents just need a little jump start to get out there.
