sputnik, cat drawing
sputnik at her water dish



I've been working on a new project feverishly for the last two weeks. At some point, I'll be able to announce what it is exactly, so stay tuned:)

Along with trying to complete my art project, I've been working on my greek myths coursera.org class. These busy weeks have been the good kind of busy and today I'm the good kind of tired.

My sweet Sputnik crossed the bridge last year, and I dearly miss her. I found the above sketch of her while thumbing through my sketch book.

Her water dish was on the shelf next to my desk. I was sketching her while she was drinking water, but that didn't last long once she discovered my pencil moving.

Earlier this year, I sent in a 5 x 5 art work to Seth Apter. During the next two months, he'll be blogging about all the artists who participated in that project.

 Wishing everyone a creative and fruitful week.

That's very creative sketch.
With such scratches, you've just made a masterpiece. This proves that art is all about your vision and perception.
Well done.

What a beautiful sketch of a beautiful cat. I love when they play with us... well... sometimes!! Mine like to walk all over the keyboard when I'm typing. One of them always appears when I'm on the phone and miaows very loudly so whoever I am talking to can hear her!
