I recently set a personal goal of completing my 3rd Moleskine Art Sketchbook by May 20th. Unfortunately, I’m finding that creative juices don’t necessarily respond well to deadlines. Besides, since drawing in my sketchbook puts me in a state of flow, I’d rather just be carried along with the process. When I finish will be when I finish. That said, I’m secretly hoping that I will be putting the finishing touches to the notebook by a new (unofficial) end-of-the-month goal post. (In spite of my advancing age – and, hopefully, maturity – I guess it’s still hard to erase all the vestiges of my Type A personality.) In any case, another letter in my alphabet series – the Q alphabet illustrations – is now finished.

Meanwhile, here’s a new drawing video from my channel at YouTube:
As you can see, cats are the focus! I just so happen to have the cutest model on earth (not that I’m biased or anything…) In addition to now being able to do Sit, Shake, High Five, Stand, Kiss, Ring the Bell – and, on occasions, Fetch – our little Ziggy now has another “trick” in his repertoire. When I pick him up under his hips, he somersaults into my lap. After that, he lies there contently licking his back paws. I promise to try to capture the acrobatics for a future video.
My illustration, above, might show 12 fantasy lives of a cat. But here’s a real life cat who risked one of his lives tescape a burning building in Chicago. Proof that cats are rather amazing creatures!
