Daily Sketch: Four on the Floor

The Fantastic Four have dinner on the floor, but they are not so close together; the artist drew them a bit too large.

All cats eat a little differently, and while most crouch some stand, some curve themselves around their bowl, some like to be off at a distance from the others. These four, predictably, all eat about the same, and don’t mind close proximity.

From top left it’s Mewsette, Jelly Bean, Mr. Sunshine and Giuseppe.

Because I feed them raw food which I dispense with my hands and therefore have to wash my hands thoroughly after I’ve handled it, it was a real trick to get their food to them, wash my hands well, dry them thoroughly so I wouldn’t have damp handprints on the sketchpaper, and catch enough of each of them before they decided they were done and a bath was in order.

I can kind of see it as a fabric pattern.
