In this drawing, Gracie waits impatiently while the Turkey is cooking. Cats love to be underfoot when they smell cooking, don’t they!
The drawing is based on a photo I took one morning while Gracie looked longingly as I poured half-and-half into my coffee, but whenever we cook something with meat or fish in it, Gracie and Mikey run around looking cute, sometimes they even play fight so that we give them their share.
Another Gracie Comic. Don’t you just love when the cat says, “Let me out NOW!” then makes you stand in the door for awhile before turning and fleeing the snowflakes! He looks disappointed when he finally comes and settles on the chair, but I suspect it is because he wants attention.
For some reason today, my head is full of ideas and images and I’m having trouble writing any of them in words. Maybe I’ll do another drawing, or just work on my rag-rug (and the second one I’ve started).
I’m going to go to an art-opening this evening at a local gallery that I hadn’t heard of until this week. No idea what kind of art, or anything, but going places to meet other artists is probably something I should be doing. Welcome to Ypsilanti!
Today, some narrative. This is a re-make of a photo collage I did awhile back of Gracie following me out of the yard, and then getting annoyed when I closed him outside. He did his little “M-a-ow” noise and in the end, I went back out of the yard and picked him up because he looked so pitiful.
I’m thinking about doing a children’s book. This won’t be it, but the idea that I should practice illustrating narratives came into my head, and here you are.
Someone recently asked me if I thought pets had souls. When you see how they react to being tricked, much the way a person would, it is hard to say that they do not.
