Cat new year resolutions

Here’s today’s cartoon. Surely all cats make these resolutions.

Nib and ink and then just painted with watered coloured inks. I wrote the text freehand, but think I still need to improve my handwriting to get away with that for much longer. I used the new inks I got for Christmas, so lots of terra cotta and yellow. The terra cotta ink is very odd – it is sort of gooey and I need to shake it a lot. It doesn’t seem to blend as well as the other colours, but I’m not sure why.

Mouse and cheese

I’ve bought some new colours of ink and really wanted to play with them.

I didn’t spend any time working on the joke, but had fun with Red, Yellow, Ochre in addition to the green, blue and black I had already.

It’s also very nice to be back drawing, having spent a lot of time on the Christmas cards recently.
