Illustration Friday: "Cats"

Actual size something like, 14 in. x 20 in.

An incomplete drawing dedicated to my old roommate, H.B. Kammer.

And Ben's cat, Kitty, makes an apperance, which is why --she being a cat-- this makes it as my Illustration Friday: "Cats" post. She is "cat" in the singular, not "cats. "

However, I believe the magnitude of the beast makes up for her singularity well.

Your illustrations seem to always have that little something in there that draws the attention and makes it even more special - in this case, that little kitty is just about the cutest thing! Can I steal it?

this cat is much nicer looking than kitty.
I've been to London. I liked it much better at night than during the day. I remember my sister and I went to a KFC, and it was a tiny one, and the door was open, and it was so cool. And then we got popcorn chicken, and we ate it, and if we opened our mouths while we were eating it, steam came out like smoke. it was pretty fun. We stayed in an old hotel, and it was neat.

Your work is so beautiful it hurts. You have become one of my favorites, and I get the feeling you'll be quite well known someday soon. Give us all a thrill and say hello so we can someday tell our grandkids about it!

Sara said...

Love your work. I actually came across a book cover that I printed from istockphoto.com - Then I clicked on your IlloFriday post and thought, shit. That looks like the same artist. And of course, it is. How very cool. Your drawings are making me feel very guilty that I don't sketch enough these days though. :)

Michelle has it right - so beautiful it hurts... and inspires! And yes, I must agree you will be well known someday soon! It's lovely to see you posting so much about works-in-progress - thanks so much for sharing with us all!
