cat Assignment #1 from “Drawing Lab: A Fun and Silly Art Kit” Hi today! The first drawing exercise in this kit is “Draw Cats in Bed.” The idea is that you put yourself in an “un-ideal” drawing situation (bad posture, fluffy surface) and draw, hopefully taking the “shoulds” out of the process and bringing back the joy of just drawing, like you did when you were a kid! Here are some cats drawn in bed this morning: catsinbed

And the colored cat at the top was created based on one of these designs!


And our cat, Natalie, wanted in on the fun, too.
