Jelly Bean and Mr. Sunshine were very pleased with their new two-compartment cat bed and tried it out immediately.

I prepared other boxes for shipping.

What else was I sketching on (or around) this date?

This started out with nice clear lines, but a bath it not always a methodical thing. I think I caught Mewsette at her toilette, though.

The first ink cartridge in my in brush pen is drying out so I’m experimenting with a mix of black fill and brushy lines. I forgot to leave a little white space between the two here, but I find that what is there is clear. It’s Mewsette and Mr. Sunshine on the stool in the kitchen looking out the door watching birds on the deck. It was so exciting she had to give him a few quick baths.

Some things I’m working on now are influencing my choice of medium and style as well, solid black silhouettes. We’ll see where this goes.
