Illustration Friday: Silent

My initial idea for this week's Illustration Friday topic "silent" was two children, friends or sisters, angry at one another but neither wanting to be the first to say "sorry."  As I was sketching this idea, my roommate's cat Cleo was laying at the base of my bed with her back to me.  Looking for a distraction, as I often am, I called her name, and Cleo ignored me.  I called it again, a bit louder, and snapped my fingers to catch her attention. Her ears rotated towards me, but she stubbornly refused to turn to acknowledge me.   I had to prod her with my fingers to garner her attention (yes, I am as stubborn as she is and she was going to pay attention to me, dammit) and voila!  I knew what to draw.


  1. Haha, nice! I've known snotty cats with exactly this attitude (full disclosure - I'm more a dog person). Really great drawing! Great lines and patterns.

  2. Love when cats do that :-) Love how you've drawn that cat!
