Artwork in Progress - "Bow Tie Kitty"
I had currently finished a drawing of my cat Booger wearing a bow tie. I started the sketch while visiting Peer Recovery Project, and had finished it at home. At first, I did not know what pattern I wanted to use for the cat's fur, I pondered about it for a day or so, but then it dawned on me on how ridiculously cute it would be to draw a tuxedo cat in a bow tie. I had decided to use my tuxedo cat, Booger, as a 'model' for the picture. She never wore the bow tie mind you; she would probably rip it off in a matter of seconds. She is even a difficult picture taker, so I had to catch her "in the moment".
I have been really enjoying pointillism, so that is the artist technique I had used throughout the image. I had first sketched it out with graphite pencil, then out-lined it with black ink, and lastly filled in areas with dots of black or colored ink to create an image of a tuxedo cat in a bow tie.
