Daily Sketch Reprise: I’ll Take Three Lumps, 2012

Lumps of coal, or lumps of sugar? I was thinking lumps of sugar. The boys “occupied” my desk, as usual, Mr. Sunshine, Giuseppe and Jelly Bean, all about as inert as the lumps in this sketch. Tough Monday.

I had the kitty keep-warm lamps on at my desk, so of course they were cuddling underneath, and also absorbing all the extra light. The least they could do is be models, but they didn’t even awake to comment or object.

  • Yep, they look like lumps! I love when sometimes, all I see it the tips of ears over some lump-like thing, be it another kitty or a beddy.

    • I call those “feline landscapes”, like rolling hills with minimalistic pine trees .
