EDM Challenge 185 – Draw a Cat

It’s been a while since I’ve done an Everyday Matters Challenge. To be honest, I didn’t do these specifically for the challenge. I was drawing cat cards for various swaps I had signed up for. So imagine my surprise when I went to check what the next EDM challenge would be. When I saw “draw a cat” on the list I just started laughing out loud. I had cats on the brain and I just couldn’t get away from them!

These are a combination of sketching some neighbor cats from life and some other sketches I had in my sketchbook

  1. Great to look at your cat drawings. The eyes are just wonderful. It’s interesting to see how different your cats are from my cats. I draw my cat in bed at night when he’s sitting at the foot of the bed. I didn’t know it was an EDM challenge – can’t keep up with all the posts – I’ll have to scan some of my drawings & post them.


  2. Love the kitties. Both cute with great expressions but very different. I have to make myself draw more freely sometimes as I tend to draw “tight” and fairly neat.


  3. Thanks everyone!

    Kim, glad you think they are cute.

    Emila, It would be wonderful to trade sometime! Your drawings are so cute. They always bring a smile to my face.

    Wendy, I have trouble keeping up with the post too. Even with the digest I often only read one quarter of the posts.

    cathy: It’s always a struggle to balance tight and loose. I’ve read that on a lot of artists blogs.
