Channeling Steinlen with this one, and I even gave it a title in French.
Well, the title should be self-explanatory, it is indeed Mimi, who occupied my drafting table all day, and she is en silhouette—or nearly so. As she enjoyed a bit of sun on the windowsill I enjoyed the play of angled light on her fur.
And I’m really loving this new brush pen! I did want to use it again so I waited for une scène so that I could try a few new techniques.
Darn that Giuseppe, he has me speaking French from all his correspondence with Mlle. Daisy Emerald Marguerite. Perhaps I am also channeling what I learned of studying Theophile Steinlein.
See also yesterday’s sketch using this new pen, “Perfect Fit”.
If I had a dollar for every person who is wearing this as a tattoo, judging by the many Pinterest tattoo boards I find it on, I could probably retire.

Handmade Kitty Love Frames from Portraits of Animals
I named this design in French because it’s an homage to Theophile Steinlen’s style and you may have guessed I’m very fond of his style. I also added the pawprints near the heart because it just needed a little something over there, just purrfect for a few little kitty paws. ! Read more and purchase.
