|Ink and marker on smooth Bristol, 2.5x3.5", Completed December 2017|
We're down to the second-to-last "You as a Cat!" ACEO Christmas present that I created in December 2017. This one is based on another close high school buddy, Jeremy. I had a pretty hard time finding a relatively recent, well-lit, and complete reference image of Jeremy, but I finally settled for a somewhat older photo that showed his hair blowing epically in the wind. I tried to replicate that effect with the cat's fur :3

Making art as Christmas presents is always a tougher challenge than I expect it to be (no matter how many years I do it!). Sometimes throughout the year, I feel lonely and friendless, but when I put together my recipient list, I realize I actually have quite a few good, close, cherished friends and family! Five, ten, or fifteen close relations doesn't seem so big a number until you sit down to make five, ten, or fifteen individual art pieces before Christmas hits! This year, I may start my present-making at the beginning of November to give myself a good head-start and plenty of breathing room...
