Daily Sketch Reprise: Four Black Cats on a White Bed, 2013

I was thinking in color today, but when I saw Mr. Sunshine, Mimi, Mewsette and Giuseppe curled up on the unmade bed, I saw the angles and wrinkles of the covers in simple, clear ink lines, and the silhouettes of the black cats against the white.

Their shapes had just the slightest amount of highlighted detail from the window light, just enough to see an ear or a nose, or to distinguish Mimi from Mewsette, and I had no idea how I would do that while still preserving their ink lines, which I love with this pen. The angled lines served to distinguish and describe their shapes, and just came naturally to my hand.

Jelly Bean was supervising me.

Stacks of boxes and bins, and a cat sleeping on the top of each one. I walked in and while there are only three stacks and more than one cat on the top of each one, this is what I visualized. Read more and purchase.
