I was thinking the same as nicole. The cat covering his eye really tickled me! I love how thoughtful your sketches are.

Thanks for stopping by today. It put a huge smile on my face.

Cute sketch! The little cat running away covering his eyes is a great touch! Thanks for visiting my blog, and leaving the sweet comment! My illustrations are done in plasticine pressed onto illustration board.

I love Erika's comment. "Thoughtful sketches" is a perfect way to describe your work. I love all the expressions, but honestly the cobweb on the candle is my favorite detail. It just tickled me that you stuck it there.
