A cat in a box is no surprise, but a box that turned out to be heavier than you thought that you open to find Mewsette happily napping in is a surprise, a very pleasant one. So, of course, I had to sketch her, because the moment I opened the flaps and saw her—and she merely flicked an ear when I did but did not acknowledge me—I pictured a simple Mewsette shape in blue in a brown cardboard box. So here you have it.
You can see my ink was not dry in some spots and fizzled; I’ll have to be more careful with that. And I had intended to work a bit of background into it so I overlapped outside the lines, then decided not to, but I like it loose like this.

Feline Artwork on Portraits of Animals
Mimi and Mewsette settled in the sun from the window on the landing, both of them enjoying the wash of the warm light on their faces as the shadows crept up over their backs. You can find prints and notecards on Portraits of Animals.
