Okay, they do look like Easter eggs…

A few people remarked that the kitties in this sketch remind them of Easter eggs. Yes, bright colors and shapes, they certainly do! I first posted this at the beginning of March 2012 and was thinking spring flowers when I looked at it, but just for today, they’ve been hand-colored by the Easter bunny! Read the original post, “Mimi in the Middle”.

Notice, also, the pencil lines under the marker. I still had to draw the shape in pencil before I filled it in and outlined it in black marker. One of the things I worked on last year was to go straight to the marker so the shapes would feel more fresh and spontaneous—and they do, but these are quite nice too.
