{caturday} a portrait

oh look it's caturday again! don't think i haven't noticed even my weekday posts include cats, maybe this is something i should work on ...

here's a little pet portrait i completed recently for a lovely customer. his name is ozzy (the cat not the customer).

i've been having a little break from drawing recently, it started to feel like a bit of a chore and i was getting frustrated with my work more often than i liked. i know it's just a phase, and everyone goes through times where they hate their work, but when it's happening to you it's just the *worst*
but this was a nice excuse to pick up a pencil again! i have another little project i need to work on next week so i'm hoping to get back in the illustration-y swing of things, then i can post some drawings* a bit more often.

*i can't promise it won't be more cats.


  1. This portrait is so beautiful, it should make you feel mucho better about your work!
    I can't wait to see your new illustrations (especially if they're cat related!)

  2. Sometimes we need a break, that is a good idea. But don't stop ever, because there are so many people loving your work out there (just like me which is far far away from your place).

  3. love this harriet! reminds me of a drawing i did of my cat many years ago though obviously nowhere near as good!

  4. Not a very Cat man, but like it :)
