2017 Christmas Presents - Hubby Cat

Ink, marker, and colored pencil on smooth Bristol, 2.5x3.5", Completed December 2017

The fourth "You as a Cat!" Christmas present I completed last December was for my husband, Sean!  I looked really hard for reference photos of a cat that wasn't just fluffy but was fluffy in such a way that it appeared to have a beard.   This is because, earlier in 2017, Sean grew out his beard really huge and even wanted it bigger, but he had to keep it in check to stay professional for work XD  I gave this ACEO cat the red color that makes up a lot of my husband's beard color.

Available on cool art merch like mugs and mousepads!

Starting with this ACEO, I began losing focus and forgetting to complete small details.  I took the photo of this and a few other cat drawings and wrapped them for gifting before realizing that I forgot to add the cats' main whiskers!  Luckily, the way I wrapped them was  simple so it wasn't too much trouble to get them back out and fix them.  I'm dang glad I had decided to take a photo of each ACEO as it was completed or I wouldn't have known which cats needed whiskers and I would have had to open ALL of them to figure it out!
