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 bed, Jelly Bean got up and put Giuseppe in his place.

What other sketches did I share around this date?

I’m running out of ideas for titles.

Mimi, Bean and Mr. Sunshine were enjoying the sun on the landing again today, a perfect arrangement for another sketch. When I sketch multiple cats—who are awake and therefore moving—I usually quickly and lightly sketch a few guidelines for each, then go back and add detail one at a time. If one gets up and moves or moves into a completely different position or posture I try to finish what I started. This sketch was no different, but they were near the end of their baths and getting ready for a nap (they are so predictable) and they basically stayed in the same places.

This is a Pilot precise fine point drawing pen, performed quite well as long as I don’t have heavy coverage where it tends to dry out.

Dirty Little Brother, 2012

Mr. Sunshine isn’t younger than Mewsette, in fact they are the same age, but she is a little bigger, and kind of a caretaker of a big sister when it comes to baths. Sunshine doesn’t seem to mind.

Working in quick, simple media again for a while, just getting lines and shapes down. This is charcoal pencil and I really enjoy that it almost looks like a crayon in the consistency of line. It’s very expressive.
