Cat drawing

DSC_2392

So is this by you?

Yes it’s an old drawing.

When did you draw it?

I don’t really remember, I think it’s over twenty five years oldy, but as I didn’t sign or date it I can’t be sure.

Where did it come from?

I was doing some spring cleaning and chucking out old letters and envelopes. I found it in a dusty file.

Why did you draw it?

I think it was when we used to go to kite festivals, which is why I think it’s from the 1990’s although it might be older. I remember being interested in the images on kites, like Chinese or Japanese art. The pose is vaguely based on a tiger I think.

Do you like it?

Mostly, not sure about the ball of wool. But I like the way the cat is twisting in mid air.

So what have you learned?

I might vary the thickness of the lines, I was doing it to add weight and shadow to the drawing. It’s an ink drawing on cartridge paper.

So why did you interview yourself?

I wanted to make my blog a bit more interesting.

 

Last choir tonight

DSC_2350

Tonight was our last choir practice until September. We were trying to learn a south seas song called tangihina. It is about a man who has to choose between his lover and a watersprite who had taken her form. He chose the waters sprite by mistake and was swept out to sea.

While I was there I started to draw the singers arriving. I’d began by drawing the chairs but everyone arrived in a rush. I’ve only done one side of the room but that was all I could manage. As it says in the drawing, see you in September!) although it won’t stop me from blogging in the meantime.
