HE ! HE!! That sounds like my friends' kitties!! Sometime wouldn't it make you wonder ... is your pet your pet? OR you are your pet's pet?! HE ! HE!! Real coool drawingS!

Lubomir said...

Haha, very cool! Nice ROM sketches, the line variety really makes the drawings look solid. On a side note, I luckily didn't have to use the TTC on Monday, but had the privilege of being stuck in traffic for an hour and a half, haha.

Clive said...

georgeous georgeous expressive gestures. I recognise...the creature...from your place. I will forward a link to my friends at The Edible Pet Society!

Wonderful cats, great blog

Hey all you guys! Your blogs are terrific. We're chuffed you had a laugh at these cat pics. Sometimes it's the things that are around you all the time that you forget to notice. So, I'm glad i remembered to take notice.

Thomas, Thank you. We LOVE your beautiful, sensitive drawings.

Jason, Thanks for the familiar cat stories. It's so good to see you around these parts again. Gotta see if you put up any recent cat pictures!

Alina, We're definately all our pet's pets.

Lubomir, Yeah, that was a wierd TTC-less Monday. Luckey we work mostly at home. I'd like to see your sketches at the ROM. Can you take a peaceful day off and go? Maybe next time we can organize a ROM meet and sketch day!?

Clive. Thank you for your kind but evil note. The creature...has protection...from his alien ancestors. He will be armed with lasers and a mind control device when the Edible Pet Society arrives.

Paublo, cheers, and thanks!!

Mattias, Thank you and greetings!! We were just visiting your blog and are blown away by the retro feeling sixty-ash quality of your very fine art (with a little Terry Gilliam thrown in, perchance?). Sweden looks cool. Wish we could be there. We'll add you to our links too.

maybe i should try this with our guinea pigs... nice quick sketches get some interesting movement across, really like the photo below, top stuff.

Lubomir said...

Hey! Yes, actually I would be interested in going to the ROM. I'm graduating tonight and will have to see what next week will bring. I'll keep in touch.

Yep, you nailed it. Great little study guys!

Mother of Invention said...

Clive sent me here since I'm a feline-lover as he is not! He torments my cats every time he visits and they dread when "Uncle Clive" descends upon their territory! We tried to get them to mark their passage on his gym bag, but then, they didn't like the smell of it, and how could one tell they'd even been there?

Neat site! You must have cats?

Smook said...

The first page is absolutely great, beautifully observed gestures to be sure!

Sumeet Surve said...

These are nice, loose and sketchy.

the doodlers said...

Richard, Thanks! Guinea pigs would be fun to do quick sketches of. Remember 'Pigs Is Pigs'? That would be a fun style to work up the sketches!

Lubomir, OK sounds very cool. Sorry we did not reply sooner, 'cause I'm on deadline with a storyboard, but after mid next week I will have a bit of time off. We'll stay in touch. Congrats on the graduation!

Justin, Thanks. Love your dinos!!

Mother Of Invention, Ahh yes, Mr. Powsey is not fond of the felines...He met our cats and we are happy to report that all parties survived. ;) Thanks for visiting! We'll check your blog out too. Yes we do have (2) cats. Or more to the point, 2 cats allow us to live with them.

Smook, Thanks! I actually almost did not post the second page, because it's sort of weak, but story-wise, I liked the litter box pose and just decided to throw it in. The blog IS called 'doodlin' after all.

Sumeet, Thanks! Your line work is amazing. I really appreciate your feedback.

martin wittig said...

Nice observations!! Yes these look very familiar indeed:)

gur-B said...

Nice cat sketches ! It looks like a siamese cat...

the doodlers said...

Martin, Gur-b thanks a bunch for visiting! Jasper's pretty much a Siamese type, crossed with a orange tabby.
