I never saw the musical Cats, and I don’t think my ex-boyfriend A. did, either, but whenever he wished to evoke the show (which—I can’t explain why one might do this, but, trust me, it came up more than once), he would sing, to the tune of what I have subsequently determined is the song “Journey to the Heavyside Layer” from the show, the following lyrics:

Cats, cats, cats, ca-a-ats,
Cats, cats, cats, ca-a-ats,
Ca-ats, cats cats,
Cats cats cats cats!

So, if you know the tune, you should sing it along while reviewing these sketches.

after five

I was still working out what to do with the Hindi “five”, so it was back (again) to doodling in the sketchbook. Later in the day, I fashioned a textile piece after earring sketch in the lower left corner.


An Indescribable Hat

I borrowed Day 5’s subject from the Boston Globe’s Big Picture post on Pushkar Mela because it reminded me of a favorite illustrated book: James Thurber’s The 13 Clocks, illustrated by Marc Simont. A character that aids the hero in the fairy tale is called The Golux and is described as wearing “an indescribable hat, his eyes were wide and astonished, as if everything were happening for the first time, and he had a dark, describable beard.”

The shading’s pretty disappointing as I was quite tired when I drew it (excuses!) but it gives me something to focus on tomorrow.

PS: Mostly tired from geeking out over this. That is all.

Phew! Tried very hard to find something other to draw than people at coffeehouses, but after ending up with my own left hand on wednesdays sketch I was back drinking coffee yesterday. I must take a look around the house and see if I can’t find some objects worth spending time on. Some kitchen utensils perhaps. And next week I’m considering throwing in some colors too. Not making any promises but I will try …

I had dinner at my mom’s house yesterday with my brother, my sister-in-law, and their baby, as well as Wendy, who lived upstairs from us and babysat for me when I was a wee tot. She was very into the baby and could not fathom why I am not interested in holding it.

This is the only sketch I made while in London. Drawn in a very dark room at a wonderful exhibition at the Victoria&Albert Museum.

i’ve been reaaally bad about updating my drawmos! i’ve been not quite as bad at actually drawing them, but i am a few days behind.. my weekends are always so busy. i might not get to do one every day of the month, but i’m going to make sure i do one for every day of the month!
so here are three more for now, days 5, 6 and 7.
day 5, tree on hill. i was bored with my normal scribbly way of drawing in paint, so i decided to do a drawing using mostly left right strokes. out of bordumb more than anything else.

day 6, pink dino died. not ultra realistic, but hey, it’s a paintbrush drawing.

day 7, bread in space. i did another version where there were stars and things in the back, but i didn’t like it as much.

as always, click on the picture for the larger version.
i could say that i’m going to be better at updating on time, but knowing me, saying something like that is a sure fire way to make sure i don’t do that.. so i’m going to just say this; by the end of all this, there will be 30 drawings on here from me. probably all in paint.


Days 4 and 5 November 8, 2007

Still three days behind, but I was pleased by the way these ink drawings turned out. I’m torn between trying to drawings with a lot of detail (like my Day 1 drawing) and drawings which are pared waaaaay down. There are so many good examples of both already here this month…
