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

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.

The Continuous Line Kitty

I’ve been neglecting my Samsung Galaxy Note 8 tablet recently. It has a free drawing app on it, one called ‘Markers’ that I really like using but haven’t done so for weeks. I’ve got a bit of a cold and I’m slobbing out on the settee and it was easier to reach for my tablet rather than go and rummage around for a sketchbook and drawing materials. The cat’s slobbing out on the settee next to me so she was an obvious target – I mean subject – and I carried on using the continuous line technique that I’ve been practicing a lot lately.

The Dog Had A Bath

The dog had a bath and now she’s running around like a maniac! Husb and I are dog-sitting while her people are on holiday. She’s a Pomerpoo – a Pomeranian / Toy Poodle cross – very small with lots of black fluffy fur. When we bathed her it stuck up all over the place. She’s not too pleased about it. Sparta Puss thinks it’s quite funny though.

melvyn and ming

I sleep sandwiched between Husb on one side of me and Sparta Puss on the other, which is normally OK but last night they ganged up on me. Husb got up for a toilet visit at 4am and Sparta Puss decided to follow him, because like many cats she thinks it’s her duty to accompany her trained monkeys to the loo. She took the shortest route, which was across my chest and throat. She’s no lightweight. I’m a very light sleeper and they woke me up. Then they came back to bed and dozed off straight away. I lay tossing and turning until the alarm went off. This is my life!

The drawing is of Husb snoozing with his late cat, Little Ming.

Too Much Admin…

7 Feb

There’s been so much admin to do the past couple of weeks that I haven’t had time to do much art, but tomorrow I have a whole day for creating. So many ideas in the pipeline….

Meanwhile, here’s a cat with a caption ….

that's not an exercise regime, it's a junta copy

Sparta Puss isn’t lazy. She’s just relaxed. So she says. My digital drawing, Husb’s caption.

Anti Cat Propaganda

I’m with the late, great Little Ming on this one. Too many films portray cats as the villains. And we know they’d never behave like that. Oh no. 😉

Another of Husb’s captions over one of my cat drawings.
