To be a cat means having a good life. People love them. People take care of them. In some cultures, people worship them. And my cat is no exception.  I did a sketch of my cat sleeping, enjoying her good life. Even when asleep, cats twitch and shuffle around, which forces me to sketch quickly. But that is a good exercise in creating a loose free-flowing line in tight time constraints.

It’s 3 a.m.! Have you fed your cats? My cartoon shows how my three cats are not shy about asking for kibble in the wee hours of the morning.

It is a lazy Sunday for me and my cats. My cat, Pepper, laid still for 5 minutes. Just long enough for me to do a quick sketch.

My cat looks like he is floating in space.  But no, he is just sleeping like an angel on the couch.

I got an iPad, on release day, eager to try it as a new way of creating art. There are already several drawing apps to choose from, such as Brushes. I’ve tried Brushes for the iPhone, but this time, I decided to try out Sketchbook Pro. For my first exercise, I do quick sketch of my cat, sleeping. I am quite happy with the intuitive feel of drawing directly on a screen, as opposed to a Bamboo tablet method. This is definitely the way of the future. I only wish the iPad was invented earlier. For another exercise, I would love to use a stylus to achieve an even more accurate stroke.

A drawing of cat resting on girl, resting on couch, watching a television show. The 20th Anniversary of The Simpsons to be exact. Happy Anniversary to America’s favorite animated yellow family! We love you Homer, Bart, Lisa, Marge, and Maggie!
