Happy Father's Day, Mark!

Sabin
5" X 7" pen-and-ink
2008

Sabin (pronounced SAAAH-ben) is an Egyptian Mau with pointy ears, a long tail like a cougar's, spots on his sides, an "M" on his forehead, and fur that feels like a mink coat. I've tried to capture his regal, Pharoah's look as well as his piercing stare. This breed is a one-man cat and quite protective of his man. Sabin will sit in his chair all night long and guard Mark while he works at the computer. In this pose, Sabin is relaxing his guard a bit, but he still has his eyes on you!
