Daily Sketch Reprise: In My Face, 2013

Despite all the sweet things I said this morning, guess who was in my face when I wanted to sketch something else? So he got sketched in all his distorted glory. But I’m sure I needed that distraction. And really, sketching him distorted like that was harder than you could

Daily Sketch: Why Do Humans Do That?

Bean wonders, “Why do humans do some of the things they do? “I was resting here, on the bed, very content, and my human came in and said hello. I did not answer because I am resting and that is what I’m doing. But she came over and asked me

Daily Sketch Reprise: 320 Cat, 2013

Daily Sketch: Mewsette’s Nap, and in Blue

So plushy Mewsette was napping on the bed with the diffuse light from the window, which faces northwest. All her soft edges were even softer, and I loved the angle at which I’d first seen her, from the top of the head down, so that her face was foreshortened and

Daily Sketch: Bothering Brother

Jelly Bean was trying to have a serious after-dinner sleep but Giuseppe was just goofing off and being a pest, rolling all over the bed and intentionally bumping into Bean. That’s a brother for you. A little bit later, as the rest of the family joined the two on the
