Do All Cats Look Alike?

Checkers

5" X 7" pen and ink

2009

Here is my first cat commission of the year, a study in concentration and clarity. Checkers looks like she's ready to jump a whole row of pieces and clear the board in one deft sweep.

My husband says that all cats look alike. I disagree. Here are a few tiger-striped faces to compare and contrast. "All feline," Tom argues. "All distinct," I counter. What do you think?

"Cats"... What a dirty four-letter word as far as I'm concerned, but my Mom says that they are a wonderful animal to study and draw and that she really loves your work. They looked "real" enough to chase, I think! OC

I do love your work, Leslie! Each drawing shows such a different personality behind those eyes. Linda

I think that is SO funny...only dog people think all cats look alike! HA!

Your cat drawings are beautiful, Leslie. I find them much harder to do than dogs. The eyes are more difficult to capture.
