Graphite Sketch of Slim

Graphite on Strathmore sketch paper

This past Monday I was listening to one of Danny Gregory’s Illustrated Life podcasts. He was interviewing artist Roz Stendahl. I was not familiar her, however as the podcast progressed I continued to learn more and gain more inspiration from what she shared with Danny Gregory. The thing that captured my imagination most was her “Daily Dots” project, which was a five year process of daily sketching her beautiful dog, Dot.

So that Monday night I began making a point of sketching my cat, Slim. She is a very special pet, friendly and quirky, and I care for her very much. This sketch is of her napping in one of her beds (she has three) at the dinning room window.
