Time for something quick and deceptively simple. I was about to sketch Jelly Bean napping when he suddenly awoke with a dirty face and quickly made himself perfect once again then went back to his nap, all without opening his eyes. The nap would have been a nice extended sketch, but catching the intensity in his face was more fun.
Nothing like bare naked lines on paper to humble you.
We are participating in Lesley Saeta’s “Thirty Paintings in Thirty Days Challenge” for September 2014.

What else was I sketching on this date?
Bath in a Box, 2013
No kitty escapes the mom treatment as Mimi steps in to share the box with Mewsette and give her face a bit of a bath. I guess that’s the right of any mom, along with sharing any box occupied by her children, even if it means walking on them and using them for a bed.

A Nip of Nip, 2012
Mr. Sunshine explores a catnip pillow, waving his tail and taking a deep inhale before leaping up and running off in a blissful haze.
