INKTOBER DAYS 6, 7 & 8

1a3376e13f4f86c6-weblogo

Three more sketches! I promise these are the last cats for a while (well, unless you ask me to draw more). I am still posting more than one day together so that I don’t overwhelm your feed, but do let me know if you prefer a daily posting.

I still haven’t got myself decent ink pens – so many to chose from! I can’t buy them all, so I’m slowly cutting the numbers down. The following are done in pen (again, your average writing pen), no pencil, and some ink. In the last one, the ink is digital. I think it came out interesting. Working with silhouettes and having them revealing something else than the shape they are contouring. I like it, and will work more on it.

DAY 6 – SATIN on Sofa

Satin is a black cat, drawing her is always a challenge. She often sits by my side on the sofa, so the perspective was interesting.

DAY 7 – CATURDAY!

Day 7 was Saturday, so…Caturday! This is a very sketchy sketch, but I think of reworking it with lots of inking, because I like playing with lettering. And some more cat-anatomy study will be good.

DAY 8 – ROUGH KITTY

With this one, I wanted to put more expression in the cat’s face, and playing around with digital ink for the black panel was interesting. Also started experimenting with the silhouette, adding variations (and using digital ink in white). It almost feels, to me, as if the white shape is the cat, not moving perhaps, asleep. But inside, there is always a cat whose senses are alert.

Next week, something different! Thanks for following, and if you would like to see something in particular, just put it in the comments 🙂 thanks!

INKTOBER Day 4 and 5

1a3376e13f4f86c6-weblogo

I was asked to draw cats, so here we go. I do have more cats sketches (some drawn already, some for another day). I love dogs and cats equally, but it is easier to draw a cat when you have one around.

DAY 4:

TYPOGRAPHY CAT  – done in pen (in fact, the pen you can see in the picture).

I love typography and I will do a lot more of it. In this case, I wanted to find the cat in the letters, but make it like a puzzle, to resemble cats’ character. Even the kitty has its head tilted in curiosity 🙂

DAY 5

DOUBLE KITTY PAGE -done in pen and Berol permanent marker

I’m finally using heavy ink (it is the point of the challenge, after all), which I don’t use often. However, I am already seeing the potential and nice effects you can obtain with it. I particularly like the silhouette effect in the Moggy Sketch on the right (see pic below for close up).

Already thinking of Day 6 and 7! Any comment appreciated, and if you want me to draw something specifically, just post it below.

Thanks!

Cat & Fish Linocut Print

Gorgeous and cheeky work by artist Catherine Cronin. The proof that what appears simple can explode with character and mischief. Love this piece!

Cat Among the Pigeons Press

I printed this cheeky pair recently; not my usual style, what do you think?
