Shelter Cats

"We all have 10,000 bad drawings in us, the sooner we get them out the better."-Walt Stanchfield

I usually draw from photographs. Either from photos I find online or from a daily cat calendar. I decided if I’m drawing from photos, why not choose shelter cats who are looking for their forever home? Hopefully my bad drawings will do them justice.

Cat Doodle 40 – TwoBit

By Syl / March 4, 2018

Meet Two-Bit the Yoga Master Two-Bit is a silly, lanky boy who likes flopping down on the floor and contorting himself into odd positions. He is incredibly friendly and easy-going with people.
