More pages from my sketchbook and news of a new book....

Properly speaking these are more worked up as paintings....

Ginge and Dennis [watercolour]




Felicity, Biddi and Tabitha.[watercolour]



This was the last time we had kittens, we got Felicity and Biddi for our son [from the shelter of course] and ended up with Felix [a ginger boy] who had been thrown out of a car.  Tabitha and Dennis  belonged next door but reckoned they owned us too.  
Their stories will appear in '100 years of cat tales, 365 stories of cats' on which I am working.  There'll be a story for every day of the year and pen and ink illustrations throughout.  I'll be posting some samples.

This one is in coloured pens and is the picture of a visitor we had until her rightful home was discovered, when she was found to be named Cindy; but for me she was always Nefertiti....


Next, Flossie, another neighbour's cat - this one is painted onto paper I've made.


and finally in this offering, some studies of Siameses washing....
