Daily Sketch Reprise: Five Cats, 2012

This includes all five of the black cats, not all at the same time, of course, I sketched them one by one as they moved around. I was also on the phone while I was sketching, but I was determined to get them in this activity. It was a very interesting way to focus, on a phone conversation and a sketch at the same time.

From the left is Mimi stepping down from the windowsill, the Giuseppe with his paws up on the sill next to Jelly Bean, sitting on the sill. In front are Mewsette and Mr. Sunshine.

    • Thanks so much–I just updated them with scans and they are much more clear. Wonderful to see you!

  • These sketches are really nice. I rarely get mine to turn out that clean.

    • Softey, thanks! It’s taken me years of practice, and until I sketched every day mine were nothing like this.
