Carlos



Carlos came to my parents' house via my sister, who noticed him locked in an empty apartment after the tenants had moved out. He was a big, brown tabby, at one point tipping the scales at 18 pounds. Here are some sketches I did of him once. If I can find a photo, I'll put it up.

    Dave -

    You're a good artist! Those sketches are fantastic. And I'm not easily won over. You are a talent, in case you didn't know.

    Ha, I wish I could hook you up with a job. But seriously, you gotta send your stuff out, keep trying. You have a really wonderful gift, you got right to the essence of that cat in your illustrations.

    Keep at it, Dave. A lot of small publications, magazines and newspapers, buy one-shot drawings and they don't pay much. But little by little you can begin to build a reputation.

    You've got the goods... don't give up!

    Hey, thanks for the encouraging words! They're seldom heard (the deer and antelope are too noisy!)...

    I absolutely agree with Jenny. I come here to refresh my soul with cat pictures, and your drawings of Carlos are so good -- so true to the heart of felinity -- that I'd pay money for prints. Would you consider a financial transaction of some kind?

    Actually, how about this? I'll send you $20 for the right to use these drawings as my desktop on any computer I have from now until eternity.

    Deal?

    Actually, I'm thinking of putting them on cards at Cafe Press. So watch this space!

    In the meantime, you can download the Carlos picture for your desktop gratis!
