From The Supermarket Queue

21 May

At Lidl

Had a quick scribble earlier in a queue at Lidl. From the carpark I could see steel council houses in the foreground, the garden city style council estate in the middle ground and on the hill in the background, the towers of the local psychiatric hospital. I used a ballpoint pen into my A6 leatherbound sketchbook.

Happy Little Scribbles

14 May

lockdown 140520

Having a quick scribble this evening as Bob Ross was on TV, using a ballpoint pen into my A6 leatherbound sketchbook. I like scribbling these little moments of homelife during the lockdown and I’m enjoying the Bob Ross “Joy of Painting” series. His style isn’t my sort of thing, but I love his manner, so relaxing, almost meditative, and all the happy things he puts into his work, like happy little clouds and happy little trees lol 😀 Laid back and happy. Lovely.

Dog And Cat

I did a bit of scribbling while I was watching Grayson’s (Perry) Art Club on Channel 4 earlier. I drew what was around me – mostly my Rocket Dog shoe and my cat. I used a ballpoint pen, it’s great for scribbling, into my A6 leatherbound sketchbook. Sparta Puss loves to stay by my side, I’ve never had such an affectionate cat. She’s only like that with me though, she hates every other living thing on the planet. Except for Husb. She just about tolerates him. My large exercise ball is just behind Sparta Puss and there’s a smear of blood above her head from my thumb, which I snagged on the cheese grater this evening.

 

 

Scruffy, Bitey, Digital Cat

Just doodling this evening with my Samsung Galaxy Note 8, a free app called “Markers” and Sparta Puss. She’s looking a bit scruffy because it’s Springtime and she’s moulting. She needs brushing but every time I get near her with a brush, she bites me. Hey ho.

 

 

3 Blurry Cats

2 Apr

 

Husb and I have been taking daily walks to get our exercise during the Covid19 lockdown and have been seeing a lot of cats out and about, more than usual. I guess they like the peace and quiet. I do, it’s lovely. I’ve been trying to photograph the little furry ones but they don’t like me coming in close so the photos are a bit blurry. The gingers have beautiful markings and the little tuxedo is so sweet.

 

 

The Digital Cat

I’ve been using a free Markers app on my Galaxy Samsung tablet (note 8) for a few years now but there was one drawing tool I had not used so I’ve been having a go with it this evening, using Sparta Puss as a model. She looks impressed, not!

Sparta says, “Merry Christmas and Happy New Year”.

Mae Sparta yn dweud, “Nadolig Llawen a Blwyddyn Newydd Dda”.

This is a lovely digital drawing of the lovely Sparta Puss by my lovely Husb.

Chonk!

I can’t keep the creative juices flowing constantly. I think most artists are the same. It isn’t a 9 to 5 job. Some days I don’t make art, but I still like to draw, even for a few minutes, to keep my hand in. That’s where the cat comes in handy, she’s always around for a quick scribble. She’s getting to be a bit of a chonk!

Here’s another family kitty…  shhhh …. don’t tell Sparta Puss! She’s a very slimline tortoiseshell cat called Lulu. I drew her on my Samsung Galaxy Note 8 with a free app called Markers.

Fat Is A Felinist Issue

9 Oct

Yo Humans. It is I, Sparta Puss. I haven’t been able to get my paws on the pooter box for ages because the bald monkeys I live with are ALWAYS hogging it. Idiots. The she-ape has had me on a diet. She says she’s fed up with people fat-shaming me on Facebook, whatever that is. So I’m on healthy rations. That’s what she calls it. I call it starvation! All the hairless apes in the family are cooing at me and telling me how nice I look but I DON’T CARE! There was a book a while back called “Fat Is A Feminist Issue”. Well I say that Fat Is A Felinist Issue and the monkeys should give me back my food. If I don’t care about having a bingo-belly then it’s none of their business to be bothered.

In solidarity, my felinista friends.   I’ll try and get my paws on the pooter quicker next time.
