Oliver in a Box


Oliver in a Box, originally uploaded by graphicartepsi.

He loves to "hide" or to find himself a cave...earlier only his nose and toes were sticking out, but when I came back with my art supplies, this is what I found!

I sketched it quickly first with a Burnt Ochre colored pencil, since he's so mobile--I wanted to get the pose down firs, then figured I could add the washes if he moved.

Which he did! I was still getting the tail end when I finished, but not the bottoms of his feet, so tweaked them from memory...

I loved the way he just disappeared in shadow...

Me too! Makes me want to crawl in there with him to see what's going on inside!

I think he thought he was invisible!

Nope. Not on my diet. >;-)

That's exactly what I was going to say! Aren't J and I too brilliant for words?

How adorable! Our cat loves to hide in paper bags. Why do they like these small, enclosed spaces? A desire to return to the womb? ;D. I love this little monochromatic slice -of -Kate- and- Cat life.

I'm not sure why they do, but they do love enclosed places--as you say, Miss Xoxa, paper bags, boxes, open suitcases, drawers left open, laundry baskets, clothes dryers. That last scares me silly and I always look twice to make sure mine is unoccupied before I turn it on! Oliver is quite fluffy enough!!

And thank you, sweet thing...I did another of him in another box today, but it will have to wait...

Glad you're back!
