Your Morning Cat • • Day 71 • • March 19, 2016


I mentioned a little while back that I’ve begun closing my eyes when I draw cats. Here is one!


The idea is, quite literally, to feel my way along and encourage more physical connection with the process. It’s making a difference. Yes, my lines and marks are a bit more cock-eyed, but they’re also far more lively. I’m finding that vision is only one part of the process –  and probably less important than we imagine.
