Illustration Friday: Cats 2

Maybe it is time for a new banner. Here's my idea. I think I will paint it up and throw in some type. I'll keep you posted.

(I accidently posted this on Illustration Friday twice. Big time sorry.)

very cool I can't wait to see it in color!

Fossfor said...

I love all your stuff! If you use this as a banner, will you call it mice tacos then? ;)

Don said...

Always love your style. Looking forward to the completed work. Question: will there be a cactus in it anywhere? The candles are pretty close to the right shape already...

Kactiguy said...

Thanks everybody.
Fossfor- It'll still be cat tacos because they are tacos that belong to cats.
Don- Didn't even think about the cactus...hmmm. Something to think about.

Just for curiosity... what type of pencil (or other medium) do you use and how large do you work? I have been working in Sepia and brown toned colored pencils lately and can't seem to get a good quality line from them... substrate might make a difference too... I'm using hot press watercolor paper... any suggestions would be much appreciated!

Artsy- I mostly draw with a brown or black Col-erase pencil from Sanford. I also do most of my sketching on a heavier copier paper called Cougar Opaque. It is great stuff to draw on and at the end of each year I bind all of my drawings into a sketchbook. Sometimes I draw on 140lbs Arches hot press watercolor paper. It is the same paper I do my paintings on. Hope that helps.

Fun stuff! I like the way your brain works, Guy! There is some terrific work on this blog!

Smook said...

Looking forward to seeing the new banner Guy!

I love it as well, but I'm still plagued with the curiosity of the meaning of "So, Cat Tacos?". Can you shed any light?

Lorien said...

Boredom a la mode, Rob?

Lorien said...

Look, sire, paper is kool!

Kactiguy said...

Thanks robotaekwon.

Smook- hopefully I'll get it done sometime this week.

Garth- I just needed a name for the blog and typed this. I meant to change it, but it stuck. It is a palindrome. Same forwards and backwards.

Ah, more palindromes from my lovely wife. Thanks Lorien
