Custom Cats

Over the weekend, I had a request from someone to make kitchen towels with cats. "Sure," I said, even though I cannot remember a single time that I have drawn a cat. I must confess that after I had finished a few sketches, I "needed" to drop by my parents' house, where I asked my mother, who is a wonderful artist, to help me fix them up a bit. The one above didn't suit the kitchen towels, but I'm fond of him nonetheless.

This little sleepy cat seemed just right for the kitchen

The same person also requested a house design, which was daunting only because I love the work of Leanne Graeff. I decided to go with a much more simple, modern house, but I must admit that I really enjoyed drawing houses and may have to try something more complex.

Hi Sam - Thanks for the call -out!

It seems we are on the same page lately.

Really love your little modern gem. (And the kitty too).

I too love Leanne Graeff's houses. Her houses are just fantastic. Isn't drawing houses so much fun? I had a real run on designing dollhouses, sooo much fun! I still haven't got drawing houses out of my system yet. Happy house drawing.
