Not much going on in March and April.  Too much useless introspection and not enough art-making.

The plan for May is to fret less and draw and paint more.

We’ll see what happens.

More cats for you here.  I’ve been making a lot of these lately.  I think because I want to make sure that they aren’t flukes or just happy accidents.  I’m so amazed by how well these are turning out.   For a contrast, here are some cat drawings I drew in 2008:

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!
