Giuseppe didn’t really need a bath, but he really wanted attention and he wasn’t getting it, and there were already three cats on my lap. So he sat down and swung his leg up in the air making sure to move around a lot and block the screen so that I would notice he was being neglected. So he got sketched in a compromising position.
Good thing the leftover naughty bits were in shadow, Giuseppe would have been mortified for the rest of the world to see them!

It started out when Giuseppe said his brother was a dirty mess and needed to be cleaned up and wavered between a bath and a rock ’em sock ’em boxing tournament, then flat out, literally flat out, wrestling, on the cabinet in the middle of the kitchen. I had such fun watching them wrestle and did a quick light sketch in vine charcoal then later enhanced it with more vine charcoal to blend their movements. Read more and purchase.
