Daily Sketch: Four Cats in Purple

Ten seconds into this one and I nearly stopped—what was I thinking? Yes, they’re really cute, but there’s a heck of a lot going on there! I had their outlines, then Giuseppe stretched as far as he could and flipped his head upside down. I had to give it a try.

This is their late afternoon cuddle. The Fantastic Four always seem to end up together; their mama had been with them only seconds before but I couldn’t catch her. Perhaps she has had enough notoriety already today?


What was I sketching this day last year?

Apple-colored Cuddle

Well, I have a lot of sketches of cuddles, I have to come up with some new names and apples are red and green, most of the time. In this case, it’s Jelly Bean and Giuseppe, who cuddle after they wrestle, especially on a dark and rainy day when I have all the lights on at my desk.

      Oh, Katie, we’re so pleased you think so! We just wish our human would get around to feeding us a little earlier or something. We don’t have any use for sketches.
