Purrin’ on the Ritz!

22 Oct

Last week (or the week before) I asked you guys what kind of art you’d like to see on the blog. The response was clear: I need to draw more cats. Fancy cats, even. Perhaps located in a specific borough of New York City. (You have very discerning taste, dear readers.)

So, without further ado: dancing cats, decked out in formal wear, in Brooklyn.

Insert your own "Wall Street Fat Cats" joke here.

Street sign aside, you can tell they’re in Brooklyn because they’re doing all this ironically.

This was a bit of a challenge–how exactly do cats dance, anyway? I’ve never seen the movie, so I found myself at a loss. Nevertheless, I had fun drawing the little cummerbund and furry high-fives. I’m also pleased with the color scheme. I haven’t done anything monochromatic in a while, and it turned out to be a fun and easy way to color this drawing. Things fell into place fairly neatly, which was a nice surprise; sometimes I end up having to really fuss with a drawing in order to make sure I don’t have too many overlapping segments of the same color, but the colors in this came together pretty intuitively.

I had a lot of fun working on this, so let’s keep it going! Please feel free to leave a comment telling me something you’d like to see a drawing of. :)

Green markers, I love you!

It’s getting down to thesis crunch time here in White River, so this update is also pretty short. I haven’t had a lot of time to do non-thesis work, but I sketched this a few weeks ago before things got too hectic.

i got them nervous feets

I like how the lettering in this one turned out. I don’t normally do fancy lettering, on account of being basically allergic to straight lines, but against all odds doing cursive lettering turned out to be a little easier. Who knew? I also figured that the tone is pretty appropriate. There’s a lot of work to be done in the next two weeks, and I’m definitely feeling nervous. At the same time, though, I’m really liking the project that I’m working on, and that’s keeping me energized. Hopefully I’ll have some pages from it to show you next week, but if things are still too busy I’ll put them up after my thesis materials are due.

Okay, now it’s time to design book covers! I’ll see you guys next week! :)
