Cat Doodle

Daily Animal Doodle 
DAY 30!!! - Cat
(complete June list at the bottom)

Today is the last day of the June doodles, but July (here's the new list) will be starting soon! By soon I mean tomorrow. Whew.

This is a doodle of my cat Gepetto. The un-photogenic one. She actually has a lot more stripes than this, but you know me. Who has time for stripes. This is what she would look like if she went on a stripe diet.

I ran out of room on her tail. I always do that - start my drawing too big and then run off the paper. My drawing teacher in college always scolded me for that.

I have loved this daily doodle project - such a fab idea from Andrea at Paper Sparrow. It has gotten me to draw WAY more often and my sketchbook is full. I need a new one. I was also able to work on drawing faster - usually when I try to sketch or doodle something it takes me forever because I'm a perfectionist. Just ask the hubs - I drive the poor man crazy. But when you are drawing an animal every day on sometimes very limited time you have to learn to draw quickly and just go with it.

Here are a few of my favorites from the month: sea lion, giraffe, kangaroo, tortoise

Here are a few of my least favorites: whale, lion, orangutan, beaver

And here is the complete list!

Get ready for me July. I will do my best to kick your butt. 

Or we could just be on friendly terms I guess. Whatever.


  1. Wow, this is fantastic! I can NOT draw're so talented! :)

    Thanks for stopping by The Sweetest Petunia!

  2. i feel like i should do something like this to get me drawing on a daily basis. but i'm not sure animals would be beneficial to me. maybe veggies? or furniture?

  3. Thanks Jacky!

    Kris, I totally think that a daily veggie doodle would catch on.
