Cats have this habit of snapping into razor-sharp focus at the drop of a hat, ancient hunters’ instincts always at the ready. It doesn’t matter if the object of that focus is a live mouse or a scrap of paper or random dust motes, because just as quickly they snap back out of it again. This week’s Illustration Friday drawing for “focused” is our cat Tinkerbelle, who has a little kitten face but can be sooooo intense it’s a little unsettling.
Ironically, the primary source I used for reference is incredibly UNfocused.
Why is it that in all of my cats’ photos they either look annoyed or zoned out? The sketch was drawn with a Pitt brush pen on regular-surface bristol paper, 9×12″
