This is a request i got on from my facebook-drawing-draw – The requester is the blog and cat-owner from Bad Cat Chris – he also has a facebook page that you can follow. This cat, despite the name of the blog and the facebook page, is called Frankie, and in the reference photo, he’s in a not-so-cooporative mood after having graciously been permitted some outside time by his owners. He’s hiding under a car.
I chose the photo because of the pose and the cat’s expression. Like yesterday’s cat-drawing, I had some difficulties with the proportions but I think I corrected most of it. There still might be some problems with the shape of the head and the detailing of the mouth. For the background, like yesterday, I brought out my fat rotring ballpoint pen, that I’ve had In my pencil case since 2009! It’s nice to rediscover things in that way.. Back when I started architecture school I bought some stuff that I thought that I would need for sketching, and then after figuring out that I didn’t know how to use them, they sort of just stayed away hidden for some time.. I’m surprised it hasn’t dried out.
This was my 469th drawing

That is awesome. Thanks for doing that. I love it. Is it ok to share it on my blog?
That would be great 🙂 Glad you like it!
I look forward to sharing it. I think everyone will be impressed.
I hope so 🙂
Well done! Frankie definitely is an adventure-seeker and you caught that “who me??” look when his Dad has discovered he’s escaped the house YET AGAIN.
Haha, thanks 🙂
I love it!
What a great expression on his face! We are learning a lot about the process of making art from reading your blog posts. We never thought about there being different thicknesses of ball point pens.
Thanks! There is. It’s quite surprising what difference the thickness can make.. but i am still learning about it.
Frankie looks really good 🙂 Pawkisses for a Happy Weekend 🙂 <3
