Daily Sketch Reprise: Top of the World, 2012

Mimi again enjoys the warmth of the sun on her one side, this time on top of the wardobe at the top of the stairs, her new favorite spot. This is another one of those complicated sketches that I did quickly, then filled in later, though Mimi spent quite a

Time for a sketch in this style again, but a little different from the others, listed below. The boys were sleeping in wonderful positions all smashed together and comfortable, just ready for a different sort of treatment. This is Mr. Sunshine in blue for some reason, and Jelly Bean in
