Why A Cat Needs An Umbrella

image

Yesterday, it rained cats and dogs – so to speak… which got me thinking about why a cat needs an umbrella!

I created this in my sketchbook.  Today I added color and shading with Tombow markers.  I recently purchased these markers to help me learn how to shade better:

I have to say, it was really fun!  I would love to know what you think!  🙂

Of course today we had sunshine, so Jack didn’t need his umbrella…

Hope I gave you a smile today!  🙂

Happy drawing or splashing in some Spring puddles…

    • Thank you my sweet friend! 😄💕 Yes, Jack thinks he is quite handsome. Hehe! 🐱💖 He loves being outside but he hates the rain! ☔️ He is such a sweet cat too. He likes to watch all my art videos with me – I think he was an artist in a former life! 😜🎨🐱

  11. Lol, so funny Jill! If only you cat had a sense of humor (or does she or he?) he would be meowing like crazy. Love the Tombows!

    • Hahaha! Thanks Sharon! 🐱💕 I think he has a sense of humor because he likes to play hide and seek with me. Then he gets this wild look in his eyes and races through the house! Totally cracks me up! 😜

  12. LOL! Funny! Have you thought about penning cartoons for newspapers or magazines, Jill? I bought those same Tombow markers but I’ve not played much with them yet. I’m terrible at shading. 😛 Your cat is a beauty!
