Sketch of a cat named Phoebe as tired as I am. Ballpoint pen.

Sleepy cat called phoebe. Drawing in ballpoint penLet me start apologizing to Phoebe the cat, who looks much less like me in reality. Thanks for the request, though!
I studied until very late yesterday (this morning) and got up very early (the night) because I’ve got to do a presentation today. I couldn’t start the day without my ritual drawing though!
This one incorporated my present state really well. It looks more like me than the cat in question – except for the whiskers.
I picked this photo because of the way the cat points its paw towards the camera.– I thought that it seemed difficult to get the perspective to work. I was right! It is difficult.

Come see some more cat drawings!

That was my 447th

  4. Dude – I Flippin LOVE your work! The human studied drawing and watercolor a few years ago – but hasn’t been able to purractice it much since the CREATURE came along – fur the last 6 years she’s been spending all day Monday – Friday watching the Creature while it’s parents work – and she is trying to find time on weekends to draw again!

    Your work is beautiful! Not bad fur a human! 😺 *(trills)*
