i play dead

Just a little quickie today, more of a doodle actually. There seems to be a theme going on around here - cat toys. And they all belong to this girl HERE.

You know, I was hoping to figure out how you drew the fuzzies from the expanded view ... but I still can't figure it out!! I swear you make ballpoint pens do impossible things. Awesome!

Second that! And you make ink do amazing things, too. How on earth do you get the soft shadows behind your tea bags drawing or the surface of the wallet is beyond me. Will you enlighten us, pleaaase?

I LOVE this. It just radiates off the screen. I wish my "doodles" were like this.

Cheers guys,

I really like this little guy actually. I think because it just started out as a doodle and I wasn't expecting anything of it. It was a nice little surprise. Unlike the drawing I've just finished which took AGES and does absolutely nothing for me!

What I like about this was trying out a new texture - fuzziness! I just touched the paper really very lightly with the pen and hatched as I normally would. I think that's how I did it?!

Thanks.

Am amazed and inspired by your artwork.
