// 365 Drawings of cats – Week 14!

Hiya! Hopefully you’re not getting too bored of my drawings cos here are some more! I’m sure sometime soon I’ll have something different to blog about, but in the meantime I don’t mind just sharing my little thoughts with you…

I hope you all enjoyed Karli’s analysis last week… I think she knows me pretty well. Merry Christmas!

5th April
Week14_1It was Easter so obviously I had to add bunnies! Except I got carried away with the buns and ALMOST forgot to add cats. And then my cats looked like buns and my buns looked like cats.

6th April
Week14_2Happy Gloopy Day! Yeah so I decided to limit my gloopy drawings to one a week, so here is this week’s! Ooh look at that lovely blue. That was an accident.

7th April
Week14_3I guess I thought I’d been doing too much painting so I thought I’d go back to the pencil. This stated as a desk doodle. I also got an email that started ‘Hi kitten’ which I thought was the absolute cutest.

8th April
Week14_4Dreaming about Disneyland is the only thing that gets me through this damn life. Have fun or fuck off.

9th April
Week14_5Don’t want to sound like an emo but this is probably the worst I’ve ever done and if I could go back in time and do it over I WOULD. Nah, no regrets. Except some. This.

10th April
Week14_6I JUST REALLY LOVE THE MUPPETS.

11th April
Week14_7This was done at 8am at the start of a looong train journey but I don’t know why I’m making excuses cos actually I really like this one. Someone said it looks like lemons but I’ll take that as a compliment, thank you very much.

365 Drawings of cats – Week 12

Meeeeeow! Here’s our weekly look back at my daily drawings!

March 22nd
Week12_1OK so don’t read me for my bad drawings right now, the left hand side is just a self portrait of what I think I look like and then the actual truth. #ImGross

23rd
Week12_2I’d been working on some of my new things so I had my paints out, yay! I super love this colour combo. I’m leaving this as a note to myself. I often find my drawings that spread across both pages create much more of a impact too – that’s another note to future me.

24th March
Week12_3These pages are two of my favourites so far… I have these old gloopy paints I’m trying to use up which I literally just squeezed out of the tube onto the page spontaniously and then formed the painting from there, adding the details later.

25th March
Week12_4GLOOP! More gloopy paint cos after the day before I thought I was onto a good thing. IDK but I WILL be coming back to it (and not just cos I still have all this old paint).

26th March
Week12_5NEW BOOK! Yup, I’m onto my 6th book! I doodled an ice cream cat on a napkin the day before and made a note to myself to draw it the next day. pop!

27th March
Week12_6This past weekend I was visiting Bristol for the Etsy Captain’s Summit, so this is a lovely little train drawing while the sun was shining. It didn’t shine much for the rest of the weekend though, did it?

28th March
Week12_7I was super happy cos Bristol has a Cass Art! (WHY ISN’T THERE ONE IN BRIGHTON?). I didn’t realise there was gonna be one else I would have had a list of things to buy, but I did treat myself to a little travel half pan tin and my favourite thing about it is the fold-up paintbrush. It was a busy weekend but I did manage to test them out and here’s what happened. FUN!

In other news! I have new things in my etsy shop! Go have a look!

// 365 Drawings of cats – Week 11

Meow! I know this blog has just been filled with my daily drawings recently but I’ve got another post lined up for this week, I promise! Not that I really care that much and neither should you. Anyway here’s what happened over the last 7 days.

15th March
Week11_1 This was for Mother’s Day which was in the UK last Sunday! I always play the Spice Girls to my mum on Mothers Day, such a good song am I right? I also love drawing these winking cats now. All the time. Also trolls.

March 16th
Week11_2Fruit Vs sweets I don’t know what I would choose. Probably fruit cos it’s natures sweets isn’t it. That wasn’t even why I painted this picture but I HAVE been having some really intense games of ‘Would you rather’ recently on Twitter.

17th March
Week11_3Oh I really like this one! It was a pan though because I started to do the background pattern and it was taking ages and the dog wanted to go for his walk so I was trying to rush rush rush. I think it still came out pretty neat. Pink and green should always be seen.

18th March
Week11_4I wanted to write a short story so then I wrote three! I wanted them to be weird and creepy but it took 2 goes until I got what I wanted.

19th March
Week11_5Someone on Instagram said they want this as wallpaper and I agree! I have to admit I got carried away drawing the flowers and leaves and then I ran out of space for the tiny cats so some of them are a little squashed but that’s OK.

20th March
Week11_6This is what happens when I have my book next to me on my desk when I’m working, I just end up doing phone doodles. Some of them are cute tho?

21st March
Week11_7This was one of the days where I could have easily missed doing a drawing but luckily I didn’t! I had to do it in like 2 minutes but I think the pressure worked this time and I like these pages a lot. HIYA HIYA EAT YOUR VEGETABLES AND BRUSH YOUR HAIR.

// 365 Days of Cats – Week 9

Meow! It’s a couple of days late but here’s a look back at the week’s daily drawings!
Last week I was viciously slammed (not really) by one of my regular blog readers at my seeming lack of enthusiasm for some of my drawings, which got me thinking a little about some of the pros and cons of the project. While I love the fact that it forces me to create something every day, sometimes on the days where inspiration doesn’t hit me in the face it can feel a bit forced, which means I end up resenting what I’ve created which means sometimes there’s not much to say. I’m thinking this is something I will work on through the year, but in the meantime I’ll try my best to keep it positive!

Now! Back to our scheduled programming!

1st March
Week9_1Now that I don’t have to work on Sundays I get to do things like watch Sunday morning cooking shows. I can’t remember which one was on but they were foraging for herbs and they had a really sharp knife. I really like sharp knives so it was in my head to draw one and that is the first thing I drew. The book is Eating Animals by Jonathan Safran Foer. 

2nd March
Week9_2
Most of the time when I do my daily drawings I don’t have time to get my proper paints out so I use these basic Reeve’s watercolours most of the time. The colours are super limiting so it’s always nice to try out shape and pattern with them as an under-image for the cats on top!

3rd March
Week9_3

Not gonna lie, this is probably one of my favourite drawings to do so far. Swearing is as fun as drawing cats. Also I think I’ve mentioned before my anti-inspirational-quote mentality…

4th March
Week9_4A bit of a doodly day but I was glad to find my pack of felt tip pens I’d forgotten about!

5th March
Week9_5Just a bit of my delayed teen angst coming through.

6th March
Week9_6Cats like sitting and watching you through the grass and then at night they all meet up and talk about all the dumb things they saw you do throughout the day. Cats are better than you and they know it. That’s why all cats are creeps and I love them.

7th March
Week9_7I guess I had this word in my head from the day before but also I think this thought at least once a day. Everything is creepy. The internet is creepy. Now turn off your computer and go outside and play.

// 365 Drawings of cats – Week 7

So far 2015 has hit me at a million miles an hour and I haven’t had a break at all since Christmas, with lots of projects on the go with I like CATS and at work (we launched a new magazine! Take a look). Anyway with that being said I’m super happy that I’ve been keeping up with my daily drawings, so here’s a look back at the last week…

15th February
Week7_1This was a drawing of this spooky man we saw that was just standing there haunting us while we were out dancing, so I thought he might have been a ghost. A few days later I was informed that it was actually us that encircled him and he had been there with more people before we scared them off. Idk he was still spooky and still possibly deceased.

16th February
Week7_2This drawing was for my pal Ali’s 30th birthday… count the cats!

17th February
Week7_3I was pleased with this one because I had it in my head and it mostly turned out as I was thinking. I always like them when I take the time to get my paints out, so here’s a future note to myself not to be lazy.

18th February
Week7_4This one isn’t V exciting, just catz & deathly hallowz.

19th February
Week7_5This was a quick little watercolour, mostly I was just excited about getting my Mickey Tsum in the picture. ILY MICKEY TSUM.

20th February
Week7_6Look! Future Toby listened! More painty and I love this one. I don’t know if any of my Etsy pals recognised the reference, but it was definitely inspired by this image here. I’ve had it in my head since I first saw it, so nice isn’t it.

21st February
Week7_7Sad floral cat is sad and smudgey.

Hope you’ve enjoyed this insight into my daily drawings, see you again same time next week for more, or find me on Instagram to see them as they come each day!
