This cat drawing is another result of my recent Gimp adventures:
The drop shadow turned out a bit weird – don’t know what happened there. I’m still learning about drawing light and shadows after I’ve started to use more colours in my drawings.
I guess I could try to fix it, but I’m more motivated to leave it as is and try again with another drawing.
I haven’t had a lot of time to doodle these past couple of vacation weeks because of house visits and house work (and let’s be real – lots of preggo naps). When I’ve had 5 or 10 minutes to draw, I’ve mainly been doodling in my sketchbook, so will share some of those old fashioned paper drawings soon 🙂
This lazy Sunday cat in a window sill I drew last Sunday while sitting in bed looking at the rain outside (my absolute favourite Sunday activity!).
I liked the drawing so much that I decided to make it available as a print and greeting card:
And I also think it deserved to be on a mug – especially great for slow Sundays 🙂
Unfortunately I don’t have a cat – but there’s a very friendly neighbour cat who visits often to get tummy rubs. But he stays outside (mostly!).
The second new design is based on an old doodle that I made years ago. Meet Banana Squirrel:
I have a new found love for squirrels, because we have one in our garden (because we live in a house now!!), and he stops by every morning and runs around looking for acorns from last season buried in the lawn.
Happy yellow designs
I think Banana Squirrel looks perfectly fine on his own, just chilling and eating a banana.
But the yellow background really makes for a happy design, don’t you agree?
And then if you multiply him it gets kind of ridiculous, but I had to do it 😀
If you’re curious about my thoughts on turning doodles into product designs, you can check out this blog post from november 2019.
Have a great day and thanks for following my silly doodle escapades!
I don’t paint very often, because I’m always clumsy and the paint gets everywhere. But today I felt like it and made this relaxed couch cat:
I haven’t been drawing a lot lately because I’ve been on a bikepacking vacation for a couple of weeks with my boyfriend (including some days spent chilling with my sister’s cat in a house by the beach 😎). But now I’m back with all my paper and pens and computer and stuff, ready to doodle and maybe paint some more. And hopefully be as relaxed as couch cat until I go back to work next week.
(I didn’t realise while painting this that the cat is either really big or the couch is really small 😂)
