Mimi couldn’t possibly complain about being cold tucked in between Mr. Sunshine and Giuseppe. I liked the way the boys are nearly mirror images, but flipped top to bottom, and Mimi is the little pillow in between.

I first visualized this in another style I’ve been developing, the black outline in ink drawing pen or brush marker with color fill that readers named my “Warhol cats”. Alas, my markers were upstairs, and when I stepped over these three to go get them they started to get up to come with me. I used what was most handy, the charcoal pencil and the downstairs sketchbook.
