Merry Spartapuss

24 Dec

Sparta snowflake

 

Greetings hairless apes. Sparta Puss here.  I managed to get my paws on the pooter when the bald monkeys were not looking. The male monkey drew me with his little tiny pooter box and the she-Simian added some snowflakes. It’s that time of year again when the monkeys send greetings to each other and what could be better than an annoyed kitty?  The apes brought me some special snacks and treats and I’m going off to eat them. So Merry Spartapuss one and all.

 

A Modern Interior

24 Dec

Xmas interior

I went visiting today and had a scribble, of course. I don’t often do interiors and still life but I think that maybe I should do more. When I see historical paintings in galleries it’s easy to lose sight of the fact that these were paintings of modern houses and possessions in their day, a record of everyday life. This is a household getting ready for Christmas, with wrapped and unwrapped presents occupying every nook and cranny around the large flat screen TV. I drew this into my A5 cat lined notebook by Peter Pauper Press with a graphite stick.
